That old and stale argument was drug out again? Come on Piers!
@grits omg. Too funny. Fact.
The Continental Army had put in an order for semiautomatic rifles designed by Joseph Belton.
Franklin and Washington were fully aware of semiautomatic rifles.
Therefore the Second Amendment obviously includes semiautomatic rifles.
Before the 2nd Amendment is Article 1, instructing the Congress...
"To promote the Progress of Science and useful Arts, by securing for limited Times to Authors and Inventors the exclusive Right to their respective Writings and Discoveries;"
So the 2nd Amendment doesn't repeal that part, you see?
@ThomasWic Check you DM's Thomas
Unprecedented that I research something based on what you said, TW. I am going to save this article. I had no idea a *repeating musket* was invented by Belton in 1777- a full 14 yrs before the creation of the 2A.
I'm floored and in awe. Thank you.
Those who label words as violence do so with the sole purpose of justifying violence against words.
