I’ve heard a number of people argue that because current firearms capabilities exceed those available at the Founding, we should consider the Second Amendment to be essentially obsolete. In that spirit, a couple of quick questions:
Radio, television, and the Internet are relatively recent developments. Should these be exempted from the First Amendment?
The Air Force didn’t exist until 1948. While the Bill of Rights notes that we may not be forced to quarter soldiers (and since there were sailors in the 18th C., we’ll count them as well), should we in fact be obligated to house airmen?
I’m just wondering, seeing as apparently some of our rights came with expiry dates. I figure a clarification may be in order.
