Albert Einstein had this right on politics and we the people better take notice of this on our Second Amendment! We better get out our thinking caps on this one. This is where they are winning on The Uneducated voter.

Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.

Like most rights, the right secured by the Second Amendment is not unlimited??. It is ??not a right to keep and carry any weapon whatsoever in any manner whatsoever and for whatever purpose.?

?Nothing in our opinion should be taken to cast doubt on longstanding prohibitions on the possession of firearms by felons and the mentally ill, or laws forbidding the carrying of firearms in sensitive places such as schools and government buildings, or laws imposing conditions and qualifications on the commercial sale of arms.?

?We also recognize another important limitation on the right to keep and carry arms. Miller (an earlier case) said, as we have explained, that the sorts of weapons protected were those ?in common use at the time?. We think that limitation is fairly supported by the historical tradition of prohibiting the carrying of ?dangerous and unusual weapons.? ?

The court even recognizes a long-standing judicial precedent ??to consider? prohibitions on carrying concealed weapons.?
