    ?Gun Control USA

    How tedious. The second amendment was written with the common military arms of the day in mind, which yes, happened to be muskets. It was also left open enough to specify ‘Arms’ not ‘muskets’ because the Founding Fathers were farsighted enough to realize that technology would evolve in the future. Free speech being another good example, the Founders did not envision the internet, television or Qutee, yet even though the technology has evolved, the constitution still protects the right. You don’t have your free speech rights restricted to the handbill presses and town hall meetings.
    If that’s not clear enough, the ‘M16′ as select fire automatic rifles are not available for purchase anyway, but that point is no doubt lost on you.
