Nadler's notable omission was the absence of the term "the people" in his reference to the Second Amendment. This exclusion changes the original intent of the amendment, which underscores the personal right of individuals to possess and carry firearms.

There are claims that Nadler purposefully left out the phrase "the people" due to his strong anti-gun position. By eliminating "the people," Nadler may be trying to suggest that the Second Amendment safeguards a group right rather than an individual one.
