@TrailerDays @linoge_wotc Anything not expressly protected by the Constitution is a matter of common law and always has been. #p2 #politicsSo if it's not specifically mentioned, the Gov't can ban it according to gun ban advocates. Disbelieving the 9th Amendment.
@linoge_wotc Hardly. The burden of proof is on extremists who argue for constitutional protection for behavior never mentioned by Madison.Like those 'extremists' who argued for Right to Privacy .
And just to show how much they 'Disbelieve' history they don't like:
@linoge_wotc The protection you DO have, as stated by Madison repeatedly, is to own private arms for service in Militia under state controlThat argument worked real well for the Chicago lawyers. Keep that one up.
Then Ladd just goes into straight lunacy:
@TrailerDays J. Madison also never felt need to mention martians, talking aardvarks, and faeries in his writings on #2A. Equally "obvious."Seriously. This is the mindset of what is leading gun control advocacy in the US.
@TrailerDays Maybe Madison did want #2A right to defend against Martians, huh? Or maybe a brilliant man just said what he meant, repeatedly.
