U.S. Senate Webpage Wrong on 2A

According to an article found on Breitbart, the U.S. Senate website, on information about the U.S. Bill of Rights, specifically the Second Amendment, has it all wrong; probably at least 5 years out of date.

The page in question, found here, says:

Whether this provision protects the individual’s right to own firearms or whether it deals only with the collective right of the people to arm and maintain a militia has long been debated.

And as the author points out, the District of Columbia v. Heller, Supreme Court case, resolved the question of individual vs. collective and McDonald v. City of Chicago, Supreme Court case, reaffirmed that ruling.

Hmmm! Must be sequestration preventing updating of the website.
