Submission + - The Second Amendment was the first gun control law (

billpalmer writes: "Gun owners have criticized President Obama’s executive orders on gun control today, citing their 2nd Amendment right to keep and bear arms. The most contentious constitutional point of our time, the 2nd Amendment has become a blanket rationale on the part of gun owners to suggest that they have an unlimited right to bear any arms they choose, and that any attempt to regulate those arms is unconstitutional. However, an examination of the 2nd Amendment itself might leave some gun owners in for a surprise. The entire amendment is one sentence long, and includes the words “well regulated” – making the 2nd Amendment effectively the first ever gun control law"
