Assault Weapons and the 2nd Amendment

THE FOUNDERS DIDN'T HAVE TO SPECIFY THE RIGHT TO HAVE ASSAULT WEAPONS IN THE CONSTITUTION.  THE MUSKET WAS THE TOP OF THE LINE WEAPON IN ITS DAY.  THE FOUNDERS SUPPORTED THE RIGHT OF ALL CITIZENS TO HAVE THE BEST WEAPONS THEY COULD AFFORD.  WE HAVE ALLOWED CONGRESS TO RESTRICT THAT RIGHT BY BANNING FULLY AUTOMATIC WEAPONS AND WE ARE LEFT WITH ONLY SEMI-AUTOMATIC GUNS NOW.  IF THEY MANAGE TO TAKE THEM TOO, THE NEXT STEP WILL GO FURTHER AND THE NEXT EVEN MORE UNTIL WE ARE ONLY LEFT WITH BB-GUNS AND WATER PISTOLS.  ONCE THAT DOOR TO MORE GUN REGULATION IS OPENED IT HARD TO CLOSE AND NEARLY IMPOSSIBLE TO REVERSE.
