Now that Anne Arundel County Executive Laura Neuman has declared the possession of stun guns to be "clearly protected by the Second Amendment" (in an interview with WBAL Radio), we must consider other weapons that should be protected constitutionally. Grenades, improvised explosive devices, hand-held missiles, and, of course, tactical nuclear devices are surely protected as "arms" by the Second Amendment because we need the ability to protect ourselves from an oppressive government which already has all of these resources. The Founders knew!
Let us pass or repeal the necessary laws and forget the foolishness of subjecting any challenges to the process of judicial review. The Founders were asleep at the switch on that one. And to paraphrase Wayne LaPierre and the late Charlton Heston, I'll give up my bazooka when you pry it from my cold, dead hands.
