    as muskets. Maybe they meant the right to bear muskets. Or maybe they meant all weapons, including bombs, cannons, whatever. Those who claim the right to bear arms should include modern guns must be able to articulate why the Constitutional right should stop at a certain level of destructiveness. Seems to me it is all one slippery slope (though I'd agree that muskets are clearly intended to be included). So to me the answer lies somewhere between 18th-century breach-loaded muskets and WMD.

    But I don't see how RKBA people can be so sure just where that line is.
