    THe Founders said “ARMS” because they knew there’d be advances in technology.

    just two examples that the founding fathers did know what they where talking about. And chew on this in their time yes Guns where “new” tech. Yes they where not “as deadly” as some of what we have now but so what. The knife and the sword ruled before the gun. In order to kill you had to be up close and personal. Now they had guns that could kill from a distance. talk about a game changer. and you are trying to make the point they did not understand the danger of the gun? Quick question you loony liberal what is an " assault" weapon? the only thing this strip does is assault my intelligence.

    If this strip is such an affront to your delicate sensibilities, then don’t look at it.
    And, BTW, “intelligence?” Don’t flatter yourself.

    You have about as much to say as the strip, which is an insult and nothing more to really say. Make a point or just do not post. The guy on the left is talking about a killing machine, “just shoot me” really? duuuuh hey did the founding fathers put any limit on “arms” like you can have all the guns but not a cannon? You can have all guns but those that shoot x yards because we are mommy government and you might put an eye out?

    Really? I often play a thought experiment. It goes like this…

    -

    You are transfered back in time to any given time period > 100 years. You have no means of support because the stuff you do (IT) has not been invented yet. You have to take a job that is invented. You make a living, but want to get rich. You approach a company to sell them technology that does not exist right now.

    -

    Let’s say you landed in 1850. The steam engine is around, but not the gasoline engine. You have basic knowledge how that works and explain it to a company. They build the first prototype and it works. You tell them about overhead camshafts and they understand. You tell them about turbo-chargers and they understand. You tell them about electronic fuel injection and ignition and they lock you in a mental institute. They don’t understand. They can’t. They never will, no matter how long you explain. For them it’s science fiction.

    -

    The amount of knowledge doubles every 10 years or so now and the rate is increasing. We are approaching the limits of what the human mind can handle. In 1789 nobody could imagine something like an AR-15, you can be sure about it, not even Sci-Fi writers. Do you realize that the concept of a satellite orbiting earth only came about in the 1940’s? The founders lived in the dark ages, basically, otherwise the first amendment would include provisions against libel for example. Nobody dared to libel someone back then because you would be asked for a duel at sunrise if you did. THIS FAR AWAY IS 1789!!!

    The suggestion that the FF believed arms were only for hunting is false… it was to protect the free state… Remember we were not suppose to have a standing army… Early England suppressed Hunting to make sure the serfs were not armed.,,, Sounds like a similar tactic to suggest it is only for hunting

    Morty, once again you let your opinion lead you astray.

    Check this out

    http://inventors.about.com/od/dstartinventors/ig/Inventions-of-Leonardo-DaVinci/Eight-Barrelled-Machine-Gun.htm

    When you do click to the next drawing, uh an automatic firing device for firearms.

    DaVinci died in 1519 more than 200 years before you say that “nobody” could imagine a (automatic) gun.

    But enjoy your stay on planet earth in the great and mighty Germany.

    Whoa! Now that is amazing!

    Unless one believes that the Founding Fathers were ignorant, that link puts the lie to those who claim the 2nd Amendment is about muskets, flintlocks and shotguns.

    But they did understand that a gun was to kill or be killed with. The 1st is about the freedom, the 2nd is about a way to protect the freedom. Yes tech doubles and they knew it! They went from a knife to a gun. Duh, and guess what there where “machine gun” like guns back then!
    So what is your point when it comes to the gun. they did not know a person could use it to kill? duuuuuu.
