The UN-Ambiguously Worded Second Amendment

DC has decided to fight the overturn of its [unconstitutional] ban on handguns. In the second paragraph, the authors refer to the Second Amendment as "ambiguously worded."

??

So I wrote them an email.

Gents:

I read your article today with interest and some amusement.

Why do you call the Second Amendment "ambiguously worded?" It's fairly clear. The wording is admittedly pretty 18th century, but the meaning is not hard to divine. And if by chance you need amplification, you can always refer to the writings of the Founding Fathers and the framers.

Did you supply that description on your own, or are you just using a handy label? Or did your editors slip it in?

Pray, tell.

Semper Fi,

Think I'll get a response?

Update 2022 5 Sep-- No response.

Very good. I still owe you a primer on the 2nd Amendment and Miller but I suspect the court will decide before I have the time to dedicate to it.

what a pity that DC decided to waste otherwise much needed man-hours and money on appealing this unconstitutional ban...

interesting how it will turn out; apparently, NRA was not so happy with the whole lawsuit to begin with...

and of course, John, you will never receive a response, you are not advocating the ban!
