Texas high school history book revised the 2nd Amendment

A textbook currently in use in a Texas high school is under scrutiny for how it addresses the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.

The Second Amendment protects the right of the people to keep and bear arms from infringement, however, according to the textbook “United States History: Preparing for the Advanced Placement Examination,” students may learn otherwise.

As reported by Guns ‘n’ Freedom, Guyer High School in Denton, Texas is using an AP History book that completely changes the 2nd amendment in an attempt to try to “simplify” what it says:

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

Actual 2nd Amendment: “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.”

Is this a legitimate concern or much ado over nothing?

Interestingly, the textbook also uses the term “separation of church and state” when describing the First Amendment. The term is not found in the Constitution and was derived from a letter from Thomas Jefferson to the Danbury Baptist Association in 1802.
