The Right to Bare Arms

 How and when did this happen?
I'm no expert but I'm willing to go out on a limb and say that guns definitely kill people. Many otherwise intelligent folks, including leading politicians and backwoods types, insist that "Guns don't kill people, people kill people," but I'm pretty sure it's the gun in certain situations. Like when someone shoots a bullet directly at another person's head and that person drops to the floor bleeding and subsequently dies, my money's on the gun.

Anyway, I ask all those NRA gun-toters who are so bent on everyone's alleged "Constitutional right to bear arms," what if our forefathers simply spelled it wrong and were actually talking about the right to go sleeveless in summer? Certainly that is something many people want, although not everyone should be permitted to do so--not without at least a background check to determine how their arms got that way and who is ultimately responsible. I say let's do something to limit this popular and often nauseating trend, as summer is fast approaching. After all, what's a government for if it doesn't protect its citizenry?
