The U.S.Supreme Court is currently hearing arguments regarding the second amendment, the right for normal law abiding citizens to bear arms. As stated the amendment is as follows:
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. –
To me it is very simple, the first words say it all “A well regulated Militia“, the normal citizen is not part of a well regulated militia!! and since the term “Arms” is so vague, reasonably. some authorized body of law has to determine what arms meant when the amendment was put in the Constitution. Since the framers would have no idea that arms, such as they are created and used today would be anything more than the musket they knew! So ban all guns except those carried by duly constituted officers law enforcement (militia??)!!!
What do you think?
