Article II Illustration and Rewrite

Article II, the Second Amendment, reads as follows:

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.

Thanks to the Great State of Texas we now know exactly and precisely what it was that James Madison had in mind when he penned those words way back in 1787. Illustrations follow:

A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State . . .

Article II a. . . the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.

Article II b

I suspect that if Mr. Madison were around today, he would word the amendment a bit differently in order to capture more the essence of 21st century America. My guess is Madison’s rewrite would read (approximately, of course) as follows:

Well-regulated idiocy being necessary to the insecurity of normal people in every state, the right of Teh Stupid to keep and bear arms in restaurants and Home Depots everywhere shall not be infringed.
