...Handguns– as we know them– did not exist at the time the Constitution was written, until the forerunner of the modern handgun became mass marketed after the Civil War. So how can they have been protected under the Second Amendment when they didn’t exist at the time?...
In their latest, DUMBEST article on guns, or more specifically, on the recent overturning of Washington DC's ILLEGAL gun ban, they make the mis-statement above, that handguns did not exist when the 2nd Amendment was first written!
Mind you, they added the caveat, that "as we know them." Not that it matters. A handgun, is a gun that can be held and fired by one hand. It doesn't matter if it holds 1, 2, 6, 10, or 15 or more rounds. IF you can hold it in one hand, and shoot it with some fair amount of accuracy, it's a handgun. And those of us who know guns, KNOW that pistols have been in existence for a very long time.
What I find interesting, the "Gun Guys" don't publish an email address, nor do they allow comments on their blog, because they KNOW, those of us who REALLY know guns and history could show them where they are wrong in their opinions.
As usual, they are the typical, cowardly left wing, anti-gun liberals, who spew their typical anti-gun/anti-freedom rhetoric, and don't want any rebuttal to prove them wrong.
