There will not be any change in the second amendment if Obama is re elected. That being said, if I remember correctly, the second amendment came about while muskets were fashionable. It's time to reassess the law. Our average citizens don't need assault rifles with 100 round drum magazines and you don't need an AK47 to go hunting. These weapons are dangerous in the hands of other than Military or Police. Also, for those people who think a revolutions is coming, I want what your'e drinking.
Methinks you should look up the DOD definition of assault weapon. They are in the business of using weapons, not the politicians. Yes, I DO OWN a real assault weapon.
The framers of the Constitution wanted the SAME weapons in the hands of the populace as in the hands of the militia. Why are you concerned with "assault weapons" when one can kill MANY more people with an 18 wheel truck. There's millions of assault automobiles out there. Look out for that bulldozer!
Do you propose to ban Oldsmobiles?
