In the United States the Second Amendment to the constitution states: A well regulated Militia being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms shall not be infringed. This has been the cornerstone of the case against forms of gun control, and especially against any attempt at prohibition, by shooters and their supporters. Yet the clause also exhibits the common problem of sweeping declaratory provisions in that its interpretation, and application to particular situations of legislative or executive action, is by no means clear.

Less significant than the intrinsic merits of such arguments is the fact that they involved a radical revision of the traditional view of the British political process. 22 The exemplar of political success had been transformed into the epitome of political failure. In terms of the balance between authority and accountability, what was striking about the various arguments of this period was their agreement that it was the authority of the system that was in question. It was too weak to cope effectively with the relentless demands that were bearing down on it.

Some changes may well be subtle and scarcely visible, especially if apparently accommodated within traditional constitutional structures and nomenclature. If they are made through administrative rather than legislative means, their constitutional significance may not be immediately apparent, even though their implications may be profound. Examples include the effect on traditional notions of accountability inherent in recent forms of patronage, such as the growth of quangos and executive agencies, and alterations in the structure of government.
