Ever Wonder How This Could Happen?

     Right Now...
It is LEGAL (buying and owning a .50 caliber rifle and military ammo)
right up to the moment
you pull the trigger.
That's how the 2nd Amendment is currently enforced.

WHAT'S WRONG WITH THIS PICTURE?

BOOM!


For $10,000 (almost) anybody can buy a 50 cal. rifle with armor-piercing 
incendiary rounds to shoot an airport fuel storage tank or an airplane 
just taking off.


BANG!

NEVER MIND: "A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State,..."
... the important thing is to allow gun manufacturers to sell any gun that's not a
"machine gun" to practically everybody. And it's still legal to buy a bump stock and 
turn your semi- into a full-automatic; i.e. a machine gun.  SO SAYETH THE NRA and Congress. 

Warning!  Political Statement!!

Republicans stole the Second Amendment. Over the course of 30 years, the right waged a war on political, legal, and academic fronts to redefine the 2nd Amendment, contrary to history, text, and precedent, as creating an individual right to bear arms.* 

Are you a history buff? (Most smart people are, even if they keep that interest in the closet.)  Do you value fact-based analysis? (ALL smart people do, but some make exceptions for matters of faith.) Are you plagued by the question, "What the heck can we do about America's gun pathology?" (You ain't the only one.)
THEN GIVE THIS A LOOK.
