when the 2nd amendment was passed all they had were really muskets.
the right for you to have one isn't infringed since you can still have a gun, but it will only fire one round before reloading, you can still
purchase and own one.
but the only way to be fair is it to apply to all americans, whether they are in uniform or not.
What a load of bull. Read a history book. And then one on psychology of psychopaths. Then you might understand better the psychology of people trying
to take the guns.
There's no way in hell they gonna take the guns away from the cops. Cops will get whatever they want and the peasants will get nothing.
As for your ``2nd amendment only covered muskets``, it's ridiculous. It covered the best killing machine in that time. It covered military grade
weapons. It covered CANNONS not to mention SHIPS ARMED WITH CANNONS.
Or let's apply your ``time`` argument to free speech... they didn't have internet back then... so should free speech not apply to internet? Or free
speech on the phone since phones didn't exist back then? Or the fourth amendment not apply to your computer? Or your phone calls? Etc...
