Keeping, bearing, and trusting

“Russ from Winterset” has an excellent essay on original intent and the Second Amendment over at Ace. Money quote:

...confronted with the opportunity to differentiate between different classes of weapons, the framers of the Constitution refused to play that game.  They put an unambiguous right into our Founding Document, and placed themselves at risk to citizens who might rise up to confront their possible future tyranny.  That, my friends, is putting a whole SHITLOAD of faith in the average, everyday American.
Read the whole thing.
