The Constitution for the United States of America

Bill of Rights
Article 2

A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.

Since our Founding Fathers knew it was necessary to have a well organized and strong Militia, which has always been defined as every able bodied person over the age of fifteen, in order to properly protect and secure the unalienable rights that were given to us by our Creator, and to defend our Freedom and Liberty, this Article was established as part of the Bill of Rights so that We, the People of the United States would not, under any circumstances have our right to keep and bear arms violated, or even infringed upon by any of our Public Servants. This Article, which the Preamble to the Bill of Rights declares to be Mandatory and Prohibitory cannot be interpreted, changed, or diminished in any way. We, the People, further mandate that all members of the Militia must be fully armed, as they themselves deem necessary, and to be trained and ready to defend themselves, their State, and the Nation from threats both within and without the country.
