THE MODERN SECOND AMENDMENT

I'm using an old draft for this, so don't think I'm dragging you over to Facebook.
The argument with an NRA person might proceed thusly: Since in 1789, private citizens were entitled under the 2nd amendment to own firepower the equivalent of that owned by the non-existent military, why, today shouldn't a private citizen be entitled, under that same second amendment, to own a private fighter jet, a drone, smart bombs, or even nuclear weapons. Why shouldn't Rupert Murdoch, for example be able to have his own battleship. It's not prohibited by the second amendment...it's encouraged. See?
