The 2nd amendment is the right of the people to keep and bear arms.
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
It gives private citizens the right to own firearms. (keep)
It gives private citizens the right to use firearms. (bear)
It gives private citizens the right to form militias, but gives the govt the right to regulate the militias.
It acknowledges the need for militias for security.
This right cannot be infringe upon, which means it cannot be amended by congress. It has it's own built-in defense from congress repealing it.


is this is correct???
