…the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.

…the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.

In 1792, Tench Coxe made the following point in a commentary on the Second Amendment:[124]

As civil rulers, not having their duty to the people duly before them, may attempt to tyrannize, and as the military forces [or law enforcement] which must be occasionally raised to defend our country, might pervert their power to the injury of their fellow citizens, the people are confirmed by the next article in their right to keep and bear their private arms. [125][126]
