America’s Founding Fathers must be turning in their graves! When penning the magnificent US Constitution; there’s no way (let alone reason) the Founding Fathers would have permitted the average bloke to have a battery of cannons and half a dozen (let alone, one) mortars in his back shed! Because that’s nearly matched by the fire-power of one of today’s large-magazine (just about reaching the firer’s knees), semi-auto military-type rifle and one Glock 12 (or more) short-magazine semi-auto pistol when both in the hands of one murderous nutter!
Reality: America’s (along with New Zealand’s) gun laws have for far too long permitted the wrong sort of guns getting into the hands of the wrong sort of people!
So this bloke, who has long enjoyed recreational shooting for many decades and is an admirer of most of former US President Donald Trump’s political achievements/policies (but not quite a few of his personal traits), is appalled by a US judge’s so recent decision to overturn California’s so longstanding ban on semi-automatic weapons (just as the Founding Fathers would also have been, I’m sure)!
