However Few apparently have ever read the First amendment as it was originally written. It is most often read only from edited and reprinted copies.
For the First thirteen copies actually read:
Congress shall make no law, respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof, or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances. (1a&b)
Most take the new edited version for granted they never look at changes between the typeset version sent to the states and the formal one signed and on display and the handed out edited version.
During a short E-Mail Interview with Gary Kleck a professor at College of Criminology and Criminal Justice of Florida State University.
Professor Kleck informed me, when asked what he expected his survey to show, “ I expected, and initially found, that more guns lead to more violence and crime, particularly homicide. More careful later research reversed this early conclusion.” (13 a&b)
