          The History of the Second Amendmentby go1dfishin history

          Something I've been curious about that no one seems to have analyzed is the interpretation of the 2nd amendment within a generation of its existence.

          Clearly the modern understand has to be so contorted that it would take more than one generation to achieve, which it did. But that would mean that case law in the first generation would likely be at odds with their specific contortions of certain phrases.

          So for example the idea that bear does not mean to carry on your person, as modern legal experts of one sort claim. It would be hard to square that will all judges in the same era the law was written, who spoke the same english as the authors, admitting in cases the constitutional fact that a person can't be prohibited by the government from retaining a firearm on his person.
