Factual Note

Only 27 Amendments to the Constitution have been ratified since June of 1788. Only one of those Amendments, the 18th Amendment, which began Prohibition, was repealed by the 21st Amendment. (I'll drink to that)

The 2nd Amendment seems to be standing on pretty firm ground, however, as has been case history, there are certain limitations, bans and parameters put in place, which must be watched and fought.

If you figure how much the musket and cap and ball pistol, to the revolver, to the semi-auto pistol and rifles have evolved, all the while battling those opposed to them, it obviously was led by well educated and effective citizen voters.

Thanks for this forum to not only buy, sell and trade items; read ideas to repair, maintain and upgrade a firearm; and the great friends we meet who share a common interest. The American way of life!
