Just saw a friend post the staged video of the guy walking into the office with a muzzle loader, missing at point blank range, and then trying to reload while everybody runs away. The premise and comment was that "guns have changed since the Second Amendment was enacted" My response lately has been that: 1) The Second Amendment is about "arms" not just firearms - i.e., every weapon, from a knife to a nuclear bomb. It is about a balance of power between citizens and the government - the government being the greatest threat to our personal liberties, freedom, and even our lives. 2) When they disarm the government, all weapons, then we can talk about disarming citizens. Not before. Of course, most people don't want to talk about #2 - they see the futility in that, and that we do indeed need a military and police with firearms. In short, they fall silent.
