This gives the lie to the gun grabbers’ silly idea that the framers of the 2d Amendment didn’t even contemplate modern high capacity repeating rifles.

I posed this to a gun grabber. He authoritatively dismissed it as a glorified paintball gun.

I can’t figure out if they’re really that stooopid....or if they’re just playing dumb.

“This gives the lie to the gun grabbers’ silly idea that the framers of the 2d Amendment didn’t even contemplate modern high capacity repeating rifles.”

Another way of looking at this - the founding fathers absolutely anticipated the unpredictable. This is why they set forth a clear process to amend the constitution. So, if a gun grabber uses the above listed argument, challenge him to amend the constitution. They know that won’t happen, because the people are against it...they’re just trying to circumvent the will of the people.

Yet another argument - what about all the technological advances that could not be predicted concerning speech. Bloggers publishing without editors? The spoken word broadcast hundreds of miles on radio waves? These weren’t predicted. So lets ban high capacity speech and limit radio stations to 10 miles broadcast radius. Lets make bloggers go through a federal background check before they post. Its the same thing right?
