“The prohibition is general. No clause in the Constitution could by any rule of construction be conceived to give to Congress a power to disarm the people. Such a flagitious attempt could only be made under some general pretense by a state legislature. But if in any blind pursuit of inordinate power, either should attempt it, this amendment may be appealed to as a restraint on both.” - William Rawle, A View of the Constitution 125-6 (2nd ed. 1829)GENERAL RULES AND GUIDELINES
