Quite frankly, I am getting sick of this whole guns versus no guns crap.
I have nothing against guns. They can be useful, necessary, and fun--depending on how they are used.
The 2nd Amendment clearly reads:
"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."
Right? So what kinds of Arms are we talking about here? If the 2nd Amendment gives us the right to bear ARMS, the only ARMS that were available back then were MUSKETS, and of course, bows and arrows.
So I suggest this: In keeping with the 2nd Amendment, let the people have all the MUSKETS they want, because that's what the Amendment protects. MUSKET BEARING.
AK-47's are not included in the 2nd Amendment. They weren't invented yet.
And what about Nuclear Weapons? They are referred to as ARMS. They weren't invented way back then either.
I mean, seriously....if an Amendment is to include everything that gets invented from the 1700's forward, why is there no amendment concerning cars, and driving? WHY? Because cars weren't invented yet! You cannot write an Amendment to include things you know nothing about!
So...since the 2nd Amendment was written before the invention of Assault Rifles, they CANNOT be included in the 2nd Amendment Rights.
AND THAT'S WHAT I THINK.....................
