Let's be honest: Who has read the entirety of the Constitution and the amendments to it? I haven't. I, like a lot of people, don't own a computer or have the access.

The Second Amendment -- the right to bear arms -- I would assume, if taken in context, supports your right to own all the black powder and flintlock guns you wish.

But taken today, I don't agree that it gives you the right to own assault-type weapons or large-capacity magazines just for the thrill of taking it to the range and getting a kick out of it.

Maybe the range should rent it to you for that purpose.
