Lynne Torgerson is a very successful Second Amendment Lawyer, with extensive experience and knowledge.  She is fully committed to protecting your Second Amendment rights.

     The Second Amendment to the United States Constitution provides that:

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.

     Keep means to possess, and bear means to carry.  Carry means to carry in public.

     Second Amendment rights are uniquely American rights.  Other countries do not guarantee a right to keep and bear arms.

     Justia Scalia, of the United States Supreme Court, highlighted that there are three (3) primary reasons for the Second Amendment.

     First, so that American citizens have the ability to engage in self defense, defense of family, property, and the like.

     Second, so that we have American citizens, armed, on the ground, to aid the military in the event of an attack against the mainland of the United States.  This also reflects that it is the American citizenry that is the Militia.  We the People are the Militia.  Having American citizens armed also deters attacks against the United States. 

     Third, so that American citizens have the ability to defend themselves against governmental tyranny.  This also reflects that since we are to have the ability to defend ourselves against governmental tyranny, we must also have arms comparable to those that our government has; so that we have the ability to defend ourselves against governmental tyranny.  Having American citizens armed also deters against governmental tyranny.

     It is also important to highlight that at the time of the enactment of the Second Amendment, there were laws on the books that required citizens to have a minimum number of firearms and ammunition; if one did not have enough, then the person was fined.  Thus, it was unlawful to not have enough firearms and ammunition.

     History has shown that when governments have sought to disarm its citizens, that following said disarmament, there has often been a slaughter of millions of its own citizens, by the government who disarmed its citizens.

     Hence, we must always support the Second Amendment to the United States Constitution.  It is vital right.
