Penn & Teller explain the second amendment in just over one minute
Out of all the amendments to the Constitution in the Bill of Rights the Second Amendment is the most clear in my opinion because it clearly states the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed–PERIOD. I find the Second Amendment to be far more clear than the First Amendment because the First Amendment states “the CONGRESS shall make no law” when it comes to establishing a religion or denying the free exercise of religion, or of free speech, or the right to peacefully assemble, or to petition the government for a redress of grievances.
The wording of the First Amendment leaves open the possibility that the States can in fact regulate it and that is something which can be debated, whereas the Second Amendment removes all doubt with its wording. Nobody can infringe on the right of the people to keep and bear arms and that is a distinction in wording that I believe has been lost on the majority of the American people, but it is a distinction which should not be ignored.
Yet the left seems to have a problem with the wording of the Second Amendment due to the militia being mentioned in the descriptive clause of the amendment. They feel as if the mention of the militia in the Second Amendment muddies the waters when it comes to who has the right to keep and bear arms and it all comes down (in their minds) to that comma which separates the descriptive clause from the active clause in the amendment.
Here is a video which is just over one minute long where Penn & Teller explain the Second Amendment, and that comma, in just over one minute. There is an F-Bomb in the video put it just helps to drive the point home.
