    I just love all of the comments here which want to give a restrictive interpretation to the 2nd Amendment under the cover of the original intent. How is it that original intent in the case of the 2nd Amendment is good when used to restrict guns but not so good when addressing speech and communication under the 1st Amendment or search and seizure under the the 4th Amendment? The long and short of it is that originalism is not good when applied to any amendment. The way through the horns of this dilemma is to amend the constitution to establish a new point of departure.

    If you don't want to be kept in the dark and lathered with horse dung, stop acting like a mushroom.
