I agreed with someone

Over on the USACarry.org forums, there is a thread about the meaning of the Second Amendment. In one the posts there was a link to an article by J. Neil Schulman, originally from 1991. It is a detailed breakdown of the linguistic analysis of the Second Amendment by a Professor Copperud, and in it is this interesting statement:

To the best of my knowledge, there has been no change in the meaning of words or in usage that would affect the meaning of the amendment. If it were written today, it might be put: “Since a well-regulated militia is necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be abridged.’

Darned if that doesn’t look familiar. πŸ™‚
