    The right of the people to have motherfucking machine guns, shall not be infringed.

    We must get back to the true meaning of infringement:

    in·fringe
    inˈfrinj/
    verb
    1. actively break the terms of (a law, agreement, etc.).
      "making an unauthorized copy would infringe copyright"
      synonyms: contravene, violate, transgress, break, breach; More
      • act so as to limit or undermine (something); encroach on.
        "his legal rights were being infringed"
        synonyms: restrict, limit, curb, check, encroach on;

    I always go back to the example of uncle Ronnie Reagan when he was Gov of CA. He was all about gun rights. Until the Black Panther Party decided the 2nd applied to them too and began carrying. Ron instantly became very enamored with gun control. So ya know, like with everything in america, depends.

    Why not flamethrowers, Abrams tanks, rocket propelled grenade launchers, a thermonuclear warhead?

    What could possibly go wrong?

    That was long before he got shot. Look up the Mulford Act. He got shot when he was prez.
