The Second Amendment was adopted on December 15, 1791. It reads:

"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."

So if the right to bear arms is in the constitution why are people of color constantly stopped, questioned and harassed if their practicing their constitutional rights.  Where was and is the National Rifle Association and why haven’t they spoken up about the death of Philando Castile who was a licensed firearm carrier that was gunned down for daring to be legally armed and letting the officer know.  Charleston Heston appeared in an NRA ad holding a flintlock above his head at an NRA Convention  saying “pry it from my cold dead hands”  Well Philando’s legal weapon was taken off his cold dead body.  So NRA where are you? Is the 2nd Amendment for all people, just your members or people a portion of society prefers to see armed?
