This whole problem was started by the NRA. I'm old enough to remember when it was an organization for sportsman and hunters. They emphasized gun safety. That original mission has become warped into an interpretation of the second amendment that was not intended by the writers of the Constitution.
If the so-called "originalists" who believe that the Constiutiton should be interpreted only as the founders wrote it really believed that then they would be leading the fight to repeal the second amendment as not being necessary in the modern era. Instead, they are leading the fight to willfully misinterpret it and justify murder and mayhem.
Hmmm . . . I may have to write a rant about that!
