This shit over at Say Uncle just freaks me the fuck out. Ha, here's where you guys discover the fatal flaw in my liberalism--I firmly believe that no good can ever come of a person coming to the attention of the government. Anyway, this makes me realize that I know next to nothing about gun legislation in this country, beyond the fact that it's illegal to own certain types of guns. But I'm looking at the Second Amendment and it says, "A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed." How has it happened that we can have wording as clear as "the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed" and have any type of gun regulations? Is there some kind of gun laws for dummies book y'all can point me to? I'm naive about this shit, I'll admit, and I'm confused about how we've ended up here. Point me the way, folks.
