Having been an active duty infantry US MARINE…
Infantryman don’t get automatic M16's. We use single shot and 3 round burst mode to great effect.
Think about that. The argument for AR15's being ok because they’re not automatic is asinine at best.
The 2nd amendment does not guarantee guns to its citizens for sport or enjoyment.
“ 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.”
We have a free state.
Therefor a well regulated militia is not required as we have a federal military and a national and coast guards.
If no militia is required than there is no need to bear arms. No need to bear them means you don’t need to keep them. End of story.
You can’t take the parts of a single sentence and manipulate them to serve your desire. That’s a rhetological fallacy called cherry picking. You take the entire sentence, or none at all. The entire sentence was written to convey a single thought.
The founders did not think you should be able to keep arms just because it’s your hobby.
Your hobby doesn’t trump the life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness to those who have been denied that right by mass shooters.
