A friend of the star of this video sent it along for me to share. It's paints an clear, visually explicit, easy-to-understand picture of how we cannot compare the Second Amendment right to bear arms in musket eras to that same right applied to high-capacity military assault-style weapons:
A message from States United To Prevent Gun Violence calls for an update to our antiquated gun laws. To get involved, sign our petition at http://org2.democracyinaction.org/o/5...

The video and this photo illustrate how long it used to take to reload:
Now gun manufacturers and the NRA, along with paranoid gun zealots, are telling us that having the ability to mow down twenty innocent children with an AR-15 loaded with a high-capacity gun magazine capable of shooting off 100 rounds and massacring entire groups of living, breathing human beings in under five minutes is perfectly acceptable... because they assert that the Second Amendment says so.
It doesn't. And no legislation that is being proposed suggests any infringement of any American's rights.
What does it take?
