We recently saw a tweet go by that said that six people now have died from the shooting at an Independence Day parade in a Chicago suburb. Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker spoke Tuesday and decided to fall back on the idea that the founders carried muskets, and so the Second Amendment doesn’t give anyone the right to carry an “assault weapon.” We can still carry muskets, right?

And probably all of those wounded and killed outside the parade were shot with handguns, not “assault rifles.”
