Voice over and space opera actor Mark Hamill doubled down on past remarks on gun control by coming out in support of the Second Amendment– as long as it’s stuck in 1789.
The actor and former Tattonine resident dropped the love for the 2A on twitter this week, but clarified that it is a very narrowly defined love, and one stacked with a lot of M’s.
Don't get me wrong, as a strong supporter of the 2nd Ammendment-I believe in every American's right to own a musket. https://t.co/AyEdrwad5N

This, naturally, led to a fair bit of discourse and confusion from his followers, while some were supportive and argued for other rights to be supported in the same way:

In the end though, at least one twittervarian, some guy named Charles C. W. Cooke, quietly pointed out this week’s discussion in the halls of the Supreme Court about this very subject.
