Amendments are additions to the Constitution of the United States, and the Bill of Rights is the term for the first ten amendments (there are 27 in all).
In the Bill of Rights, we find the Second Amendment, which by many is seen as the document that gives all Americans the right to own and carry guns.
The Second Amendment
“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” (krænket).
The message of the Second Amendment is not completely clear, and Americans do not agree on how to understand the meaning of it.
