    In the Scranton Times Today.

    Attorney general-elect fields questions from students - News - The Times-Tribune

    Kathleen Kane is used to answering tough questions.
    The incoming attorney general smiled often Monday, as she fielded questions about gun laws, the Jerry Sandusky investigation and her regrets during her career. There were none of the latter, she noted.


    "We shouldn't have assault rifles," she said. "That's not what the Second Amendment was meant to do."
    During her tenure, she hopes to see laws enacted that require gun owners to report lost or stolen weapons to cut down on "straw purchases" where guns are bought legally and sold to people who cannot buy their own weapons. She believes placing limitations on assault weapons would also reduce school violence.

    It is frustrating. The semi-auto rifles are not "assault" rifles. What Is An "Assault Rifle"? - You've Probably Been Lied To - YouTube

    But with all lies, when it is repeated often enough, over time it is perceived as truth/reality.

    If we ban assault rifles then bad guys won't use them because their illegal.

    That's my sarcastic voice.

    If they ban assault weapons, can I keep my defensive weapon?

    I think any AG who knew her butt from a hole in the ground would know that's already illegal.

    "We shouldn't have assault rifles," she said. "That's not what the Second Amendment was meant to do."
    The 2A was written to ensure that all adult males fit to carry arms were capable of performing in effective fashion if needing to defend themselves and their communities against dire threats, including resisting military threats to their homes and families if need be. Can't be doing that effectively with prayer and pixie dust. It's only with sufficiently capable arms, training and organization that any people can present more than a sporadic, disorganized defense. That was once well understood. The modern liberty haters have forgotten it (if they ever knew).

    She and all other others of her sort need to re-read the histories. This might be a good start: The Founders' View of the Right to Bear Arms: A Definitive History of the Second Amendment, by David Young. A review of the intended, envisioned purpose of the 2A.
