The Right to Bear Assault Rifles

I just saw a post on Facebook that, apparently, there are those who are saying that the Second Amendment doesn’t apply to assault rifles because they were invented after that amendment was written. Even if it’s a myth, it’s a specious argument. I tend to think, if anything, there are similar grounds for banning or restricting assault rifles as there as, say, rocket launchers and grenades. The right to bear arms does not, in my opinion, mean the right to bear ALL arms. And don’t get me wrong — I support the right to bear arms, but I do agree that we, as a country, need to revisit the way our gun laws are written.

Have anything to add to the conversation?
