The Second Amendment according to Common Core

In textbooks approved by Common Core, the Second Amendment is described as:

1) The Second Amendment: The people have the right to keep and bear arms in a state militia.

2) This amendment states that people have the right to certain weapons, providing that they register them and they have not been in prison. The founding fathers included this amendment to prevent the United States from acting like the British who had tried to take weapons away from the colonists.

These are just two examples of how common core is both "dumbing down" the second amendment as well as trying to redefine what it actually says and means, even as the Supreme Court has upheld it original meaning.

When the left can't get what it wants through laws, they try the courts. When they can't get what they want through the courts, they go to media and education. If generations are raised on ignorance of their rights, they won't miss them. For the left today, all belongs to the State except what the State allows you to keep.
