Keep and Bear

These two terms are near the end of the Second Amendment which states: 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.

This individual right (D.C. v. Heller) is acknowledged in the Bill of Rights but it is not unrestricted (D.C. v. Heller). The reason for forming Keep and Bear is to help make Citizens who are firearms owners, responsible firearms owners. Education and Training in the responsibilities and actions of firearms owners are necessary to stave off the erosion of this right. They are also essential in raising the awareness of gun owners to prevent tragedies caused by carelessness.
