... the weapons that would be used in a militia. Then a few decades later, along came Heller- they held they knew what the second amendment was- an individual right to bear arms- and that arms were the ones in common use of the time
This is not directed at you jimDandy . That sucks ^^ The government can ban something then a few years later when a case makes it to SCOTUS they use the term "common use" to determine what may be reasonable . Those things that are banned would be in common use if the government had not made them illegal in 86.
