    The Second Amendment to the Constitution established that "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". Nowhere does it define "arms", and it neither permits nor denies gun ownership for private purposes. In 2008, the Supreme Court decided that individuals have an inherent right to own handguns for lawful purposes. But does "handguns" include assault rifles? And Sandy Hook and other tragedies have raised the profile of the gun rights issue to our schools and churches. Is it legal to monitor everyone who has been treated for mental illness?
