The original Pennsylvania Constitution predates the Second Amendment so that anyone that ever had any doubt as to the exact intent of the Second Amendment (which was not adopted until December of 1791) concerning the right of an individual citizen to keep and bear arms needs only to read the Commonwealth Of Pennsylvania Declaration Of Rights of the people.
Constitution of Pennsylvania - September 28, 1776
The original 1776 PA Constitution
> XIII. That the people have a right to bear arms for the defence of themselves and the state;
and as standing armies in the time of peace are dangerous to liberty, they ought not to be kept up;
And that the military should be kept under strict subordination to, and governed by, the civil power.
Later changed to:
Right to Bear Arms
> The right of the citizens to bear arms in defense of themselves and the State shall not be questioned.
And then also keep in mind that EIGHT of the original Signers Of The Constitution were from Pennsylvania.
