This is a 6 week series of The Constitution brought to you by Hillsdale College's own Allen P. Kirby, Jr. Center Center for Constitutional Studies and Citizenship.

The following is a quote from the confirmation email I received after signing up.

This Celebration will include speeches and panels on important contemporary topics related to the Constitution, and will feature distinguished guests Congressman Paul Ryan as our opening speaker, and syndicated columnist Charles Krauthammer as our evening speaker. The following week, on Monday, September 19th, the first session of "Introduction to the Constitution" will be available to watch. For the next four weeks, on Monday, a new session will be available to watch. Each week's session, once posted, will be available to view on-demand.

Do you feel our Constitution under attack?
Do we have a "right" to police protection?
What is the "militia" as mentioned in the Second Amendment?
If the Second Amendment is shredded enough, do you think the rest of the Constitution still exists as we know it?
If the Constitution becomes worthless to the people of the United States as we know it, does that mean slavery might exist again as it did in the past?

States Rights vs Federal Government. Wasn't it the States who fought for the end of slavery while the Federal Government fought to keep slavery?

Personally, I would like to gain a greater understanding and arm myself (pun intended) with facts and proof when having a conversation with others who truly believe the meaning of "militia" in the Second Amendment is the "military".
Most conversations about the Constitution, Declaration of Independence, or the Bill of Rights tend to be confusing without first building our knowledge on a sound and sturdy foundation. What better foundation to build on then starting with a center that is dedicated to the studies of the Constitution.

I hope you this course helps, I know it will surly help me
