A NEW PARADIGM FOR THE SECOND AMENDMENT
This concluding chapter discusses what can be gleaned from the history of the Second Amendment. It is argued that the most important consequence of reading the Second Amendment by its original understanding is that it demonstrates that both the modern collective rights and individual rights interpretations of the Second Amendment do great harm to the text, effectively erasing half of its original meaning. The current debate over the Second Amendment ought to serve as a wake-up call to Americans, and both sides in this debate need to back away from extremist rhetoric.
