AP History Textbook Rewrites the Second Amendment

0

An AP history textbook has rewritten the Second Amendment. Here’s the Constitution’s wording:

“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.”

Here’s the AP history textbook’s reworking of the text:

 “Second Amendment: The people have a right to keep and bear arms in a state militia”

The revision interprets the Second Amendment in a way that concludes that the only way it’s constitutional to “keep and bear arms” is for a person to be part of a “state militia.” United States History: Preparing for the Advanced Placement Examination gets it backwards as the following article points out:

“The 2nd Amendment says that a militia is necessary to protect a free State, so in order to be able to have a militia, the citizens have a natural right to keep and bear arms and the government cannot infringe on that right.

“The textbook version implies that we’re only allowed to keep and bear arms if we’re in a State militia, a clear misrepresentation of the 2nd Amendment.
