In this country’s first two centuries, only three cases brought before the US Supreme Court required an interpretation on the Second Amendment. But over the three decades since, few debates have proven so persistent and so polarizing. On one end of the issue are those who believe that the Second Amendment champions unfettered access to and use of whatever firearms one chooses. On the other are those who believe our founding document ties gun ownership to participation in a militia, and thereby argue it lawful for government to limit firearms in any way it sees fit. But, Jonathan Hennessey argues that both sides are misunderstanding the intentions of the Founding Fathers in his documentary, You Don’t Understand the Second Amendment.
