2nd Amendment 101
The Washington Post has a really excellent retrospective on the history of the Second and Third Amendmens to the U.S. Constitution. One of the many interesting things that few people realize is that these two amendments are very closely linked historically, and it is quite remarkable how they have diverged to become respectively the most and the least controversial parts of the Bill of Rights. Well worth reading.
