The fact is no one is asking to expand the weapons to include the ones the writer mentioned. That is just the typical anti-gunners claim to cloud the real issue. What is being asked is for the liberal politicians to refrain from outlawing firearms currently legal just because they don't like the way they look. The second amendment clearly covers that issue.

The pro-gunners would support the background checks EXCEPT for the fact the liberals insist on keeping the records permanent which is nothing more than gun registration. That is why the bill hasn't managed bipartisan support.

The current bills have little to do with safety but plenty to do with disarming law abiding citizens.

"I don't understand how people can interpret the thoughts of the authors of the amendment." I hate to break the news to you Mr W., but that's what the Supreme Court (and some lower courts) do EVERY DAY. (Well, the days that they're in session.)

The Second Amendment has nothing to do with sport or hunting. It has everything to do with the populace having a parity of arms with the state. Before we get into this discussion, let's look at the Third Amendment. The writers of the constitution new first hand what a tyrannical government could do. The Bill of Rights are amendments that were added to the constitution and ratified by the states. Please. Before you post opinions on the constitution, know the facts and the history behind it.
