Ok, I'm working on a persuasive MLA research paper on the American citizen's right to own guns. Obviously I want to cite the 2nd Amendment as a primary source, but how the hell do I do that? There's no option on Citiation Machine for historic documents, and when I tried googling the subject (search term "how to cite the bill of rights in mla"), no one could give me a straight answer. Rough draft is due three days from now, so a prompt answer would be greatly appreciated.

Domo arigato!
