"You have the right to bear arms, not electrical arms, court declares" http://arstechnica.com/tech-policy/2015/03/you-have-the-right-to-bear-arms-not-electrical-arms-court-declares/ "The decision says (PDF) that the US Constitution's framers never envisioned the modern stun-gun device" "The Massachusetts case, decided last week, concerned Jaime Caetano, who lives in one of five states making it illegal for private citizens to posses stun guns. She appealed her 2013 conviction, on Second Amendment and self-defense grounds, claiming she had a right to the weapon to protect herself from what she said was an abusive father of her children. The penalty for breaching the law carries up to a 2.5-year maximum jail term. She was caught with the device outside a grocery store after allowing the authorities, who were looking for a shoplifter, to search her purse." Well this is interesting?!? The framers of the Constitution didn't envision things like the text messages or the internet. I guess the 1st amendment only applies to spoken word, quill and ink and maybe the hand press..
