Theodore Johnson Writes New Commentary on Second Amendment

The Second Amendment proclaims, "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," Theodore Johnson writes his first book "The Second

Amendment Controversy - Explained" to help explain the controversies that surround the Second Amendment. For example, his book reveals that the first and third commas in the above quotation of the Second Amendment do not exist in the amendment's original ratified wording.

"The book includes important references related to the Second Amendment to permit independent study and clearly shows the who, when, why, where and how the individual and collective right interpretations were formed," Johnson said.

As a former government employee and gun enthusiast, Johnson goes into detail about the arguments on the philosophical foundations for each of the opposing positions, explains the intended meaning of the Second Amendment and documents the reasoning of those who disagree.

"There continues to be confusion over whether the Second Amendment is an individual right or a collective right," Johnson said. "This book claims to explain that confusion and does."

"The Second Amendment Controversy - Explained" includes in addition to the text, an extensive set court cases, letters to and from government officials discussing the views and news summaries of incidents about the use of firearms.
