The historical quote of the week from Proclaiming Liberty comes Henry Campbell Black. He was the founder of Black’s Law Dictionary which is considered the definitive law dictionary.
The second amendment to the federal constitution, as well as the constitutions of many of the states, guaranty to the people the right to bear arms. This is a natural right, not created or granted by the constitutions.
Black, Henry Campbell. Handbook of American Constitutional Law. 3rd. Ed. St. Paul: West Publishing Company, 1910. 543 Print.
