US Senate Says Right to Keep & Bear Arms is Debatable
Suggests 2nd Amendment may not apply to individuals, despite Supreme Court ruling

According to the U.S. Senate, the individual right to keep and bear arms under the Second Amendment is debatable.
A Senate.gov guide to the Constitution contains an “explanation” next to every section and amendment of America’s founding document.
The Second Amendment guarantees, “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.”
However, according to the Senate website, “Whether this provision protects the individual’s right to own firearms or whether it deals only with the collective right of the people to arm and maintain a militia has long been debated.”
The “explanation” makes no mention of a 2008 Supreme Court ruling (District of Columbia v. Heller), which affirmed that the Second Amendment protects the individual right to own guns.
