The Second Amendment plays a massive – some would say outsized – role in our often-dysfunctional national gun debate.

But the full force of the Amendment’s influence over the scope and extent of gun control cannot be found in casebooks.

Keywords: Second Amendent, gun control, rights talk, rhetoric
