This short video explaining the Second Amendment is not only kicking it on YouTube, it’s as relevant today as it was when it was made in 2008. Its effectiveness lies in its simple, concise explanation. Like clockwork, whenever a terrible event like Sandy Hook or the Aurora theater shooting occurs, the left sees it as an opportunity to call for stricter gun laws; laws generally aimed at restricting the types of firearms and ammunition that law-abiding citizens should be allowed to own — or not. While the left interprets the Second Amendment as protecting the right of a state militia to keep and bear arms, conservatives see the amendment as protecting the right of the people to do the same.
