Amendment clarification could resolve differences

Published Friday, February 22, 2013   |  163 Words  |  

Whatever ambiguity exists in the interpretation of the Second Amendment might be resolved by passing another one, such as: "Congress shall make no law abridging the right of citizens to keep firearms in their homes appropriate to the protection of life, limb and property (or resistance to a despotic authority); or to carry such firearms unconcealed off their property. But nothing in this amendment shall be construed as limiting states or their subdivisions from restricting or limiting the concealment of such weapons in public places or from prohibiting their presence where they would constitute an unreasonable threat to the security of the people."

The original intent of the Founders of this republic was based on weapons capable of a single shot and reloaded at the muzzle, the only technology available at the time. They could not possibly have envisioned magazines filled with a hundred rounds of human slaughter shot.
