    Nope its spot on. The Founding Father would have known that advances in firearms were inevitable and still they did not include any restrictions to the 2nd Amendment. If you people want restrictions call for a Constitutional Convention and do it the legal way. It would be hilarious watching it fail miserably

    For some reason you are hung up on the physical properties of the Constitution itself. We are talking about its words. The spirit of its words. Are they stuck in the 1789s or are they subject to different interpretations as times change. That is the debate.

    What makes you say that. I doubt the founding fathers had a clue how guns would evolve. The industrial revolution was just in its infancy.

    Without reading all of your drivel, the spirit of the words from the FF's are solid....etched in stone. Sadly liberal judges/justices have
    legislated from the bench new meanings for the words. But, make no mistake, our FF's words would certainly work against your
    liberal agenda.

    LOL, do you see what happened in Virginia? It has turned from blue to in play over their 2nd amendment attack, lol.

    Now you know why these Leftists harp, whine, moan, and groan, but refuse to try and pass a law or constitutional amendment on ANYTHING they support. The blow back would knock most of them out of office except for the bluest, of blue states.

    This is why they actually are, DO NOTHING DEMOCRATS! They know what most Americans think of their policies, so they sit here and argue a philosophy of governance, instead of actually DEMANDING their representatives put forth legislation to try and change things.

    Would you LEFTISTS like us to get a shadow law writer to compose the bill for you so that you can DEMAND that all your heroes support it publicly in their states?

    You bunch of phony-e-baloneys, lol!

    I notice the OP ignored a pertinent question: the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed means what to whom?

    I'll add another for the OP scholar: Where in the constitution is the authority granted to interpret the words as one sees fit?
    That being said, I'll suppose they can interpret laws they pass however they want to but that doesn't answer the question asked.
