No, not naive at all. I acknowledge that "reasonable regulation" is what we have to live with because that's what the SCOTUS has ruled, but that doesn't mean we have to forget Reading Comprehension 101 and ignore the reality that the SCOTUS opinion simply is not supported by the language of the law itself.

While I fully acknowledge that we're stuck with it for now, I prefer to always keep in mind what the 2nd Amendment actually says as a reminder to keep the pressure on at all times and at all levels in an effort to move us back to where we should be.
