This is the biggie, let’s break it down. Start with the title, Assault Weapons Ban of 2019 is the short title. To regulate assault weapons, to ensure that the right to keep and bear arms is not unlimited, and for other purposes, is the long title. See the difference?
If you were a FUDD and only think you need a deer rifle and shotgun the short title won’t upset you much. In the long title, the portion stating ‘to ensure that the right to keep and bear arms is not unlimited, and for other purposes‘ should get you upset.
The text of the 2nd Amendment is pretty clear; “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.” The Text above is directly in contrast with this Most all of the Resolutions have the bit, ‘and for other purposes’ added this in itself is troubling, however, in this case it is particularly worrisome, what other purposes? Read the entire thing, it’s sneaky.
