    Most appropriate schoolhouse rock for this thread I think.

    Though the status quo version of how America came to be in that video sucks, so here is a better one that is very applicable (though I did post this in another thread).

It is not a right to keep and carry any weapon whatsoever in any manner whatsoever and for whatever purpose: For example, concealed weapons prohibitions have been upheld under the Amendment or state analogues. The Court’s opinion should not be taken to cast doubt on longstanding prohibitions on the possession of firearms by felons and the mentally ill, or laws forbidding the carrying of firearms in sensitive places such as schools and government buildings, or laws imposing conditions and qualifications on the commercial sale of arms. Miller's holding that the sorts of weapons protected are those "in common use at the time" finds support in the historical tradition of prohibiting the carrying of dangerous and unusual weapons."
    Thanks for clarifying. In the sentence you corrected, you were referring to the restrictions supported under 1934's Miller, and not to the restrictions imposed by state legislatures. Gotcha.

    I'm torn by that terrific 3-post explanation of American History. For one thing, it's spot on and well-done. On the other hand, it was written by a Canadian!



    Seriously, 'tis a sad thing indeed when a citizen from another country knows our own history better than (I'd wager) 70-80% (at least!) of our own citizens.
