At the time the Second Amendment was written, the killing rate of a rifle was about three people per minute. Today, the Bushmaster can slaughter 500 people per minute. So is banning assault weapons really a chipping away of gun crazies' rights, or instead has there been 200 years of incremental piling-on of unintended "killing rights" which need to be checked?
