The gun lobby and resultant extraordinary proliferation of guns, especially those designed and manufactured for mass killings of citizenry, could not have been anticipated by the framers of the Constitution. It makes no sense to deny that armament corporations and the gun lobby take ownership rights so far beyond the “original intent” it makes the Second Amendment to all intents and purposes unrecognizable.

It amazes me that some people are so smart that they know what the founding fathers intended.

Don't tell me that Thomas Jefferson could not have foreseen that armament technology would develop beyond the single shot flintlock.

Actually, the people that write and believe this garbage are a special kind of stupid.

People with this myopic view point should learn about American history, and our framers intents!!!

I'm sure that the author of this tripe would agree with restrictions on Internet communications, tv and radio communications, and twittering, be a use when the founders passed the First Amendment, there were no vacuum tubes, let alone silicon chips!

There is no such thing as a "living Constitution"; the COUSA is inert, intended to carry immutable founding principles forward unaltered from its conception. It contains the means within to modify methods, but not principles.

A free people's liberty is validated by the fundamental right to defend themselves, individually and collectively (in that order), and to the means of exercising that right.


[The American Colonies were] all democratic governments, where the power is in the hands of the people and where there is not the least difficulty or jealousy about putting arms into the hands of every man in the country. [European countries should not] be ignorant of the strength and the force of such a form of government and how strenuously and almost wonderfully people living under one have sometimes exerted themselves in defence of their rights and liberties and how fatally it has ended with many a man and many a state who have entered into quarrels, wars and contests with them. — George Mason, "Remarks on Annual Elections for the Fairfax Independent Company" in The Papers of George Mason, 1725-1792, ed Robert A. Rutland (Chapel Hill, 1970).
