I'm wondering if the men who wrote the Constitution would be proud of where we are heading today. I'm sure they would shake their heads at us.
For myself I am sure they would in general be horrified. They might not understand our technology or living conditions but they would understand things like limits on free speech, arms are virtually banned in some places and would probably start with burning our 100,000's of pages of unnecessary federal laws and regulations.
I do not think they would call us the same free nation they created. The federal governement was never intended to be so strong.. I think they Federal government was really suppose to be responsible for defense and fair trade with not a lot of other powers added to that..
As for the 2A, the fact is there was little if any debate in its passing which to me shows that arms were considered essential and above being banned overall.
