Question 1) How many of the founding fathers had, prior to the ratification of the Second Amendment in the late 18th century, ever even heard of a semi-automatic pistol with a 30-round clip?
- a. Zero
b. More than zero
If you answered (b), then STOP. You FAIL. Get thee to a TARDIS. Do not pass GO and do not collect a Tom Baker scarf.
If you answered (a), then go to question 2.
Question 2 – short answer) How could anyone in the 18th century who had never heard of a semi-automatic pistol with a 30-round clip be presumed to have an originalist intent to cover such weapons under a right to bear arms?
If your answer is more than two words long – and if neither of those words is “they” or “couldn’t,” then STOP.
Get thee to FOX ‘News,’ where a job as an on-air ‘expert’ awaits – or just go straight to the Republican caucus in the U.S> House, where a seat awaits.
