What are The Federalist Papers? Who wrote them?

From September through April 1787-1788, The Federalist Papers were written and published in New York newspapers. These editorials explain the new Constitution, including what the different articles and clauses mean.  And they encouraged the people of New York State to ratify the Constitution.

The Second Amendment and its history

The Framers of the Constitution recognized that allegiance must be to the Constitution – not the State – as a limit on the power of the State to protect the people.  This is why it’s sometimes said that sworn personnel are “sworn to protect the people.”
