The phrase, "right to bear arms", is a loosely quoted phrase from the Second Amendment of the US Constitution. The exact meaning of the amendment is constantly being debated. Some argue that it was meant to guarantee the citizens of the United States the right to an armed national military. Others claim it was meant to give every citizen the right to keep and carry guns any time and any where. The phrase touches emotional buttons with gun rights advocates as well as gun control advocates in the US... and in Canada. A US propaganda poster, created during WWII to promote war bond purchases, and a nephew whose love of guns is legendary, were the inspirations for this wood engraving.
