2nd Amendment

"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."

Please don't hide behind the "right to bear arms". I have no problem with gun owners other than the fact they like to paraphrase the Second Amendment to suit their needs. Remember that when the amendment was written, the United States did not maintain a standing militia. Now we do. Personally, I see no need for military type weapons in the hands of non-military personnel or armor piercing ammunition in the hands of civilians. Body armor should be limited to military and law enforcement use only. Hand guns have only one real purpose - to kill other human beings at close range.
