And we all know cars kill more people than guns. Well, maybe not in a few states. Data from 2009 (most recent statistics available):
OK, so you could say that cars are not protected under the US Constitution like guns are. Clearly the Founders couldn't even conceive of the idea of modern transportation - but of course they fully envisioned the evolution and development of "arms" including large magazines for automatic and semi-automatic weapons? Original intent? Strict construction? Anyone?
And there is that pesky Ninth Amendment that would seem to preserve the freedom of movement long recognized by our inherited British Common Law which I suppose could be applied to cars. But only if you stretch things again beyond original intent when the Founders were clearly talking about feet, horses, coaches and ships.
The NRA is disgusting. I went out to the garage yesterday to remove the NRA Sharpshooter badge I won at Scout Camp from my old backpack. The badge wasn't there. I then seemed to recall that I had removed it some time ago as my disgust for the NRA didn't start just yesterday.
