Include That in the Constitution

In the sweltering summer of 1776, the Founding Fathers sat at a table in Philadelphia working on the Constitution. It had been a long day. One Founding Father said, "Whew! It's warm in here." Another Founding Father replied, "Shall I open the window?" The first Founding Father said, "No, that's alright. I'll just remove my jacket and roll up my sleeves." A third Founding Father said, "Now there's a good idea. We should include that in the Constitution!" Founding Father number one said, "What? Give people a constitutional right to remove their jackets and roll up their sleeves while working?" Another Founding Father said, "That's good, but can't you punch that up a little?" So Founding Father number one said, "Okay, how about this: 'All citizens shall have the right to bare arms.'?"
