The second amendment is silent on
1 what types of guns are allowable
2 How guns may of can be regulated
It is simply that government has NO AUTHORITY
to control or even to influence possession of guns.
One of the reasons for this
is that the citizens are supposed to be able, in theory,
to overthrow government AGAIN,
as the Founders who enacted the Bill of Rights had just finished doing.
4 weapons that didnt exist when the Constitution was penned.
That is the same as freedom of speech and freedom of the press
applying to newspapers using electric printing presses
or to citizens speaking on television
5 what the several states can do about gun ownership and whether guns nedd to be registered.
Clearly, thay are prohibited from doing anything,
because by saying that the right shall not be infringed
means that it shall remain uninfringed.
THEREFORE, no government can infringe it,
except by USURPATION
of ultra vire
with the same authority as a schoolyard bully
Quite a few other points tht the 2nd A is silent on.
Does that mean that the 2nd A assumes all situations by the level of detail presented in it?
It assumes nothing.
It merely prohibits governments from doing anything to control possession of guns,
the same way that governments cannot make u go to Church
if u don 't wanna.
Its not hard to understand
