If the authors of the Constitution of the United States had been even remotely able to envision the ways in which weaponry would evolve, the limitations of the second amendment might have been stressed more specifically.
Even as it is, gun enthusiasts might do well to look it up. It does not say what you think it says.

Dershowitz, tonight on Piers Morgan (CNN) outlined the regulations in Israel, where the crime rate is extremely low, - among them, and I can't remember them all, a gun purchaser has a waiting period of 60 days, a thorough mental examination, a behavior history, and training in the use of the weapon before he can take possession. That doesn't seem to me to be any more an infringement on his rights, than a driver's test or a pilot's license. If only it had been the case in the US, Where I gather any form of artillery is freely accessed at a myriad of weekend gun shows, perhaps that misguided mom wouldn't have acquired these killing machines, and left them lying around for her hideously deranged son to commit those atrocities in Newtown!
