Thirty-five words acknowledging the good uses and potential uses of guns, in an article of 7,729 words, is not necessarily better than nothing. The article, "Battleground America: One Nation Under the Gun," written by Harvard University history professor Jill LePore and published in the April 23 issue of*The New Yorker, begins with 545 words dedicated to shootings at schools and ends with another 583 words in the same vein. Buried somewhere in the middle, LePore acknowledges that a gun "can be used to hunt an animal or to . . . prevent a crime. Enough people carrying enough guns, and with the will and the training to use them, can defend a government or topple one."

LePore claims that the word "arms," as used in the Second Amendment, means "military weapons
I would be OK with that ruling, that the 2nd ammendment only guaranteed the right to keep and bear weapons similar to those in use by the military. Would be consistent with Miller.

Somehow I don't think the anti's would like the consequences. Biden's double barrel shotgun wouldn't be protected, but anything the SEALs carried would be. Would they even bother banning things then ? "No, single shot weapons are forbidden, you need to buy select fire ones..."
