    according to the Constitution ....

    Half Flower


    Second Amendment to the United States Constitution




    Constitutional amendment


    The Second Amendment to the United States Constitution protects the right of the people to keep and bear arms 

    and was adopted on December 15, 1791, as part of the first ten amendments contained in the Bill of Rights. Wikipedia




    when this was written ...

    the available firearms  

    LONG GUNS .. aka rifles or muskets ... single load

    and 

    REVOLVERS 






    the founding fathers never could have envisioned the weaponry available today ...



    semi- and automatic rifles

    machine guns

    assault rifles

    bump stocks 

    large magazines  ( to hold many bullets )

    and much, much more ...


    had they known ... perhaps they would not have included that amendment


    or  been ultra specific as to the two weapons allowed




    overly simplistic ?


    perhaps 


    but far too many weapons belong ONLY in the hands of the military


    and sometimes not even them ...
