I hear the terms "reasonable" and "common sense" thrown around a lot by people who want to create laws, rules, and regulations that infringe upon our Second Amendment rights.
I hear it so often that I had to go look it up. Again.
Nowhere in our Constitution or the BOR, nor in any original writings, do I see where our Founders used the terms "reasonable" or "common sense" in regards to anything.
Why do you suppose that is?
Well, 2 main reasons, would be my guess...
First, I suspect that words like "reasonable" and "common sense" were left out of the Constitution and other such documents because the terms are subjective. The Constitution, BOR, Declaration of Independence, etc, are not subjective documents and were not created to be interpreted as such.
Second, I suspect that the Authors would never have considered using such terms as "reasonable" and "common sense" when writing the road map to our future because they believed in their hearts that it was perfectly obvious that the future they were creating was based on reason and common sense. They were simply recognizing the will of the Creator and the great potential for shenanigans by people empowered to govern. (I can't help wondering if they ever considered that so many of those being governed could be so stupid?)

I suppose that the courts will spend the next several years interpreting the "meaning" and the "definition" of the term infringe... Once they figure out what the founders meant, they will define the term to mean what they want it to mean. ;)
And just for fun...
