Oh.
Okay.
That is your premise, so defend it positively.




The founders correctly wanted citizen soldiers to defend freedom because they felt standing armies were always corrupt because they work for who pays them.

So if we want full auto for defense, then everyone should have full auto.
If you want to make abuse of firearms a capital offense or something, that is a whole different issue.

Didn't you know? That's why the military moved away from muzzle loaders. After all, rapid fire with far higher muzzle velocity ensures that a soldier isn't as deadly as he would have been with an old fashioned musket. [end sarcasm]



Obviously the point was that there were mass murder weapons back in 1776, such as blunderbusses, punt guns, grapeshot, unrestricted cannon, etc.

The number of people you can kill with one shot has greatly decreased over the centuries.

In fact, full auto is not very effective.
Likely the military would be more effective without it, except for when shooting at airplanes or helicopters.

So were they right and so is that what you think our professional armed force, really ?

But look you started a off topic discussion here, so why not just a new thread with your contention "The founders correctly wanted citizen soldiers to defend freedom because they felt standing armies were always corrupt because they work for who pays them."

Happy to join you there, but as to being topic here, anymore, b'bye.

I hear the Air Force has switched to dropping 'Nerf bombs'.

Yah, who needs a 2nd Amendment when you have armed police?
