ABSTRACT
The article discusses the right to keep and bear arms in the U.S. with regard to the various court cases. The Second Amendment states that "the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed." Meanwhile, the Fourteenth Amendment is intended to protect the right to keep and bear arms for self-defense. It also discusses the possible consequences of adopting the Fourteenth Amendment in arriving in a decision through the Privileges or Immunities Clause.
