List Rules Supporters of the 2nd Amendment: Vote up the firearm regulations you agree with; vote down the ones you do not believe should be enacted.

The Second Amendment to the US Constitution was passed by Congress on September 25, 1789, and it was officially ratified on December 15, 1791. In the more than two centuries since its ratification, Amendment II has been the subject of repeated and wide-ranging interpretational debate. That likely has something to do with the forthright simplicity of the text of the Second Amendment, which states, "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."

However, what the Second Amendment means has come under increased scrutiny in the 21st-century United States. To some, it needs to be reinterpreted in the context of modern life so that it reflects the range of firearms that exist today. For others, the mandate of the amendment is clear, and any regulations on firearms fly in the face of the Constitution. Is there a regulatory middle ground for firearms?

If you support the Second Amendment, do you support any firearm regulations? If so, which gun-control measures are you in favor of?
