Second Amendment Fight
Protects More than Guns

People who talk and write about the Second Amendment focus on firearms. There is nothing wrong with that. Some people go off into the weeds on nuclear weapons, but the cost of obtaining one for non-state actors is prohibitive and covered in minute detail by thousands of pages of regulations.

Consider the other end of the spectrum. That end is clearly covered by the Second Amendment.

Consider how much protection the Second Amendment gives to items other than firearms. Items which are used and carried every day by tens, perhaps hundreds of millions of Americans.

This was driven home to me in the months I spent in Australia. The Australian right to arms, which should have come with the Australian Constitution, has been destroyed. It was driven into oblivion by the willingness of the Australian courts to follow the British lead and simply ignore it. .......

It's interesting to consider other aspects concerning self defense other than just firearms. Perhaps currently the most absurd direction that can be seen in the UK, is the move towards making points on knives illegal - perhaps the intention to make stabbing less of a problem leaves just the option for slashing! How long before other "pointy" objects come under scrutiny such as screwdrivers and chisels? However you slice it, bad people will ignore laws and always find ways to commit evil deeds.
