Own a musket for home defense, since that's what the founding fathers intended. Four ruffians break into my house. "What the devil?" As I grab my powdered wig and Kentucky rifle. Blow a golf ball sized hole through the first man, he's dead on the spot. Draw my pistol on the second man, miss him entirely because it's smoothbore and nails the neighbors dog. I have to resort to the cannon mounted at the top of the stairs loaded with grape shot, "Tally ho lads" the grape shot shreds two men in the blast, the sound and extra shrapnel set off car alarms. Fix bayonet and charge the last terrified rapscallion. He Bleeds out waiting on the police to arrive since triangular bayonet wounds are impossible to stitch up. Just as the founding fathers intended.

Private canons were central to revolutionary-times militias. Now people beg for government to take away guns, destroy sovereign borders, and control media companies. We have no external enemies left to fight. They're all right here.

We can make our own cannons. Get a bore big enough to launch bowling balls or grape shot. 👍😀

They are being influenced by external enemies.

The first amendment doesn't protect modern speech either. Ban facebook.

[–] PewterKey 0 points 8 points (+8|-0) ago 

The argument should be applied to every amendment.

3rd - The founders didn't understand terrorism or counter intelligence. Quartering Soldiers in homes requires them to be soldiers, not private military contractors or police. The government should know it can use your home at any time without due process for national security.

4th - The founding fathers had no knowledge of the possible war on drugs. It is essential that unrestricted searches be used to destroy drugs in our communities.

5th / 6th - The founding fathers could never understand a modern Judicial process. Video and DNA evidence should allow fast track instant convictions without a jury.

7th - The founding fathers did not understand economics. Thus trial by jury for common law suits should be abolished.

8th - The founding fathers were blind to the evil and criminal nature of modern man. Thus we need cruel and unusual punishments that they could not comprehend in order to fight terrorism.

9th / 10th - The founders put too much faith in the states and people. The federal government is what has been the backbone of American power. Thus the rights that have not been listed should go to the federal government, congress or the president directly. Because how could the founders envision a world with no privacy or instant communication or safe abortions. These should given by the sole discretion of the President.

Would like to give this 25 up voats.

I think you’re joking, but some leftists unironically believe this. The First Amendment is under attack just like the second.

[–] Tasgall 0 points 0 points (+0|-0) ago 

Except not though - some leftists just aren’t idiots who don’t have he slightest idea how the amendment works.

[–] Tasgall 1 points -1 points (+0|-1) ago 

It does, just from the government, like it always has. Facebook can ban you like I can ban you from my own private server because it’s my property. The government can’t ban Facebook because the government can’t ban speech.

Same with guns btw - your right to bear arms does not give you the right to enter my place of business carrying a firearm if I choose to not allow it.

I just bring up the puckle gun. You can't simultaneously say the founding fathers had such amazing foresight into the future and whatever but at the same time see something like the puckle gun and not realize that guns were going to get more and more dangerous. But the left specializes in cognitive dissonance so it doesnt matter.

[–] Mistr_MADness 0 points 1 points (+1|-0) ago 

I think there were many other repeating weapons beyond the pickle gun at the time. In any case, like you said, the Founding Fathers weren’t incapable of foreseeing technological progress.

[–] Itsdone63 0 points 0 points (+0|-0) ago 

You are correct. I looked at it for refreshing purposes afterward and it actually pales. You obviously get my point though.

[–] TestForScience [S] 0 points 0 points (+0|-0) ago 

The dreaded 'pickle' gun haha!

[–] Tasgall 1 points -1 points (+0|-1) ago 

They had the foresight to know the constitution would need to be changed with the times, hence the amendment process.

But instead of using it, we just fabricate interpretations of what else they wrote like tea leaves to determine modern law.

...as the founding fathers intended.
