When the Second Amendment was drafted, state-of-the-art weaponry was a smooth-bore, muzzle-loading musket. A skilled soldier could fire three rounds in a minute, but it was such an exhausting task, it could not be sustained. At best, a musketeer could kill three people in a minute if two of them were willing to stand around while he reloaded.
An AR-15 shoots 800 rounds a minute. It takes no more effort than holding down the trigger. Doing some non-critical-race-theory, second grade mathematics means that an AR-15 has 267 times the killing power as an 18th century musket.
So when Republicans say that mass shootings are a mental health issue, they are correct and their enabling gun laws gives that one insane person the killing capacity of 267 insane people at the time the Second Amendment was ratified.
Have you noticed that all these Republicans who claim that mass murder is a metal health issue get a combined millions of dollars from the gun lobbies and spend $0 on mental health?
