The founding fathers never intended for the public to have access to "military style" weapons.

During the revolutionary war (before the 2nd amendment was written), some of the most effective weapons were rifles used by civilian militias. While the uniformed army was using smooth bore muskets, farmers etc were using their privately owned rifles, which were far superior in technology muskets.

This trend continued, the army was using single shot springfield rifles up into the 1890's while the public had their high capacity assault Henry and Winchester lever guns.

I know this is not a gun quote/myth, but I just can't resist posting it.

Way back when airbags first came out the fear was that if you ended up in the water after the crash you would be trapped by the airbag. A major US car manufacturer decided to run a test using crash dummies. This is a quote from the press conference. "Yes, the mannequins were killed, but only slightly."

Yes, Actually, The invention of most powder charged weaponry was 99% Military inspired but the civilian world most often was the greatest recipient of its benefits. After all, most Armies arent always at war but everyone appreciated the Self defense and hunting benefits of Firearm Ownership on a daily basis for hundreds of years.

Today is no different, Millions of Americans across the nation legally use weapons to feed and protect their families every single day. The reason the Founders used the word, "Unfettered" instead of "Reasonable Restrictions" was obvious, they knew one was distinct while the other could be manipulated.

It's all in the details. You have no idea how many times I got tripped up by that one over the years. I would be watching the ME make a canoe out of somebody and he would ask me what the cause of death was. I would tell him the injury that led to the death and he would usually say, "Nope" and then not say another word.

After he finished I would go over that corpse from one end to the other and never find another COD. I learned after a bit that the COD is always cardiac arrest. It may be cardiac arrest on it's own, or it may be secondary to something else, but until that heart stops, they're not dead.
