The “right to bear arms”…

… does it include death ray guns?

When the USA’s Second Amendment was adopted on 15 December 1791, the “right to bear arms” referred to weapons like these,

1797 flintlock pistols

1797 flintlock rifle

In the years and decades to come, as technology produces  more and  more highly advanced direct-energy (ray guns) weapons – capable of god-knows-what destruction – will the American appetite for guns finally be quenched?

If I was the NRA, I’d start to be worried.

Some buildings make awfully good targets. Especially for those who are pissed of at the gun lobby after losing loved ones to gun violence…
