    Limiting types of guns is included, but also other programs that increase public safety, like CDC reseach showing how death via guns impacts heath.

    Does not death regardless of cause signify the ultimate impact to health?

    Actually the so called cop killer bullet is largely a myth. When the law banning Armor Piercing ammo was passed no cop properly wearing a bullet proof vest had been killed by AP ammo fired from a handgun, except for on Miami Vice. The definition of “Cop Killer” or “Armor piercing” (AP) is nothing more than ammunition that can penetrate a “bullet proof” vest and can be fired from a handgun. All ammunition used in center fire hunting rifles can pierce a bullet proof vest but is not classified as AP since there is no handgun made to shoot it. If one were manufactured then that ammo would be considered AP. While some projectile designs require less velocity to penetrate all are capable with enough velocity. Ever see those boards and trees with pine needles stuck in them after a tornado? Same concept.

    Oh and you can buy body armor on amazon.com if you are a 42R

    The first gun control laws were Jim Crow laws designed to prevent blacks from owning guns because you can’t very well have a linching if your target has the ability to defend themselves. Some of these laws left it up to the discretion of the sheriff to decide who could and could not purchase a firearm and others required signatures from prominent business owners and one went so far as only allow the sale of the more expensive brands to prevent not just blacks but the poor as well from owning firearms.

    The Bill of Rights purpose was to protect natural rights of the people from the government. So evidently they believed the rights were existential but felt the government may want to encroach on them.

    if you read the first, second, and fourth amendments you will see that they all use term “the right of the people” which is in reference to an individual right and not a collective right.
