It's About the Money

 From The Hippies Were Right:
"It's irritating when people pick and choose how to interpret or use the Constitution to justify their wants. I've done some research, here is what I've found.

In 2001 it was ruled that the 2nd Amendment (when referring to automatic assault weapons) only refers to "collective rights" of the state to arm it's citizens in a case challenging the Assault Weapons Ban, then (funded by a Senior Fellow at the CATO Institute) came a 2nd case; in this case, the court ruled in favor of "individual rights" to bear arms due to an extreme 1975 weapons ban in DC. It stated that people have a right to handguns, shotguns or rifles, and it interpreted that "regulated militia" referred to proper training and education.

Automatic weapons, semi automatic weapons, large clips etc are not currently your constitutional right to "individually own". The states you live in are simply allowing you to own them.

The gun industry is a very profitable industry. Don't think for a second the gun debate going on right now has anything to with your rights, this is all about money."
As friend Jeff pointed out it's NOT rocket science!
