    It pretty easy to compare muskets to the guns we have today because the work in much the same way, but what happens if we advance beyond firearms to directed energy weapons does the 2nd amendment cover that?

    Well? See, I don't know, nor does anybody else, though there are no shortages of opinions, yours and mine included. I suppose to the 65% of Americans who believe the second amendment is about citizen protection from a tyrannical government, the answer would be basically yes! whatever the government has.

    Dude, I know your new here and exited to jump in feet first, but you've been pinging me since yesterday afternoon! Take a chill pill.

    A suitcase nuke (also suitcase bomb, backpack nuke, mini-nuke, and pocket nuke) is a tactical nuclear weapon which uses, or is portable enough that it could use, a suitcase as its delivery method. Thus far, only the United States and the Soviet Union/Russian Federation are known to have possessed nuclear weapons programs developed and funded well enough to manufacture miniaturized nuclear weapons.

    Did you ever get around to reading that article I linked you to? The right of the people to keep and bear arms is not limited to defense against a tyrannical government. It is unconditional. A directed energy weapon would be covered.

    what the Second Should say is as follows

    The federal government has no proper power to regulate small arms sales, possession or use in the United States of America except on federal facilities.
    One .. If the states refuse to act in a responsible manner, then the feds MUST jump in .
    Two .. Obviously, the Second Amendment need to be properly rewritten , with all the vagueness... causing controversy .

    Dude, I am responding to many posters. You ain't special. Calm.

    If I annoy you that much, ignore me.

    My apparently annoying nature notwithstanding, suitcase nukes are still a myth. This is old news.

    Why should anyone not believe that one was one of the purposes for the Second Amendment? Quite a lot of evidence makes clear that it was, and I'm pretty sure the Supreme Court cited it.
