The 2nd Amendment Explained

Season 1 Episode 29 | 9m 28s

When we talk about the 2nd amendment today, we talk almost exclusively about the “right to bear arms” and individual gun ownership. But whatever happened to a “well-regulated militia?” In today’s episode we dive deep into the Supreme Court cases that shaped our understanding of the 2nd amendment and frames the way we still talk about the meaning and limits of “gun control.”
