Q. How would I cite the 2nd Amendment to the U.S constitution?


According to the APA Style blog, "All citations of the U.S. Constitution begin with U.S. Const., followed by the article, amendment, section, and/or clause numbers as relevant."

For example:

  • In text: Women gained the right to vote in 1920 (U.S. Const. amend. XIX).
  • References list: U.S. Const. amend. XIX.  Retrieved from...

You should cite where you located the amendment. See the APA Help guide for examples.
