High School Textbook Rewrites Second Amendment



A High School textbook has redefined the 2nd Amendment – and other provisions of the U.S. Constitution’s Bill of Rights – in order to fit the progressive reinterpretation of America’s founding document.

As first reported by, the textbook, which is currently being used at Guyer High School in Denton, Texas, and elsewhere, teaches students an altogether different version of the Bill of Rights than originally penned by the Founding Fathers.

In the textbook – United States History: Preparing for the Advanced Placement examination – authors John J. Newman and John M. Schmalbach describe the 2nd Amendment as follows:

“The people have a right to keep and bear arms in a state militia.”

The actual 2nd Amendment reads as follows:

“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.”

The reinterpreted amendment advances a notion commonly held among leftists and gun-control advocates that it only applies to militias. Mr. Newman and Mr. Schmalbach have conveniently rewritten history in order to clarify that the 2nd Amendment does not apply to average Americans.
