THE INDIGNITY OF THE “2ND” AMENDMENT? 😥
The “militia” amendment was NOT put 2nd intentionally the way the 1sTAmendment was, out of reverence…it ended up there from down the list as a result of editing in which other priorities were consolidated into other text.
Largely, the “2nd” was to placate the fears of slave states of slave uprisings over which they were willing to withhold signing on to the Constitution? :-! 😦
