    I wonder what part of shall not be infringed that the politicians and judges don't get. The left is waaaaay too stupid to understand it; the right has their noses buried in Donald Trump's ass and he's the most gun hating liberal in my lifetime.

    All people do is talk about banning the damn guns. Ban the sons of bitches that endanger our lives. The legal and mental health community already know WHO poses a threat to society. So, rather than have people who have racked up 20 police reports, umpteen arrests, gotten suspended from school, reported for violence, etc. investigated and dealt with, all the anti gunners want are more laws that affect weapons and the citizens access to them.

    The Right to keep and bear Arms is an unalienable Right and the government has no legitimate authority to enforce laws against owning or carrying the weapon (other than the manner in which one may be worn in public.) Government has the power to pass and enforce unconstitutional laws, but they lack the authority.

    Before Gatling – Who Was The First To Invent A Rapid-Fire Gun? - MilitaryHistoryNow.com

    "Puckle Gun – 1718

    The brainchild of an English inventor and lawyer by the name of James Puckle, the gun that bore his name was essentially an over-sized, hand-cranked revolver – invented more than 120 years before Samuel Colt’s legendary six-shooter. The weapon, also known as a defense gun, had a single barrel, behind which sat a large 11-chamber cylinder, each loaded with a 32 mm ball (about twice the diameter of a musket round) with a powder charge. Originally intended to be mounted on the sides of warships and fired directly at the deck crews of enemy vessels, the gun could loose about 10 rounds a minute — roughly three times the rate of fire of a musket of the time. Puckle designed two versions – one that fired conventional round shot and another variant launched square bullets. Considered much more lethal than ball shot, these block-shaped rounds were only to be used against Muslim Turks and other non-Christian enemies. While investors had high hopes for the Puckle gun’s popularity, the British military remained unimpressed. The complexity of its design made it impractical, especially in the era before interchangeable parts. Does this mean the gun was ahead of its time? Perhaps. But contemporaries pointed out that the only people ever harmed by the Puckle Gun were its investors."
