the right to bear arms is just that. without proper wapons these days like assault weapons then you can not faithfully do it. politicians think not of the purpose of the amendment or the spirit of it . nor do they think it cant happen ether. wwith out proper equipement a militia doesnt stand a chance to protect our constitution. i feel everyone is hurt by what happened in conn. and want to blame anything they can. if all america doesnt stand up and say , would you be happier if the guy tok a ied and blew up the kid make them happier? ban on mags and assault weapons isnt the way to go and will not solve anything.
