  2. How has the Supreme Court interpreted that language in recent decisions?The supreme they have not yet donr any gun legislation in the year .
  3. Do you think there should be any restrictions on an individual's right to own and carry guns today? If so, what kind?Yea I thik that people should not carry gun .
