Regardless of where you feel the line should be drawn (muskets, full auto weapons, nukes, etc), would you be in favor of another constitutional amendment that specifically called out what types of weapons can be owned and who can own them? Disregard if you feel the line will be drawn at a weapon yo...

I don't have any faith that the owners would support this. 35 feet of additional field would mean less space for some premium seats close to the field, right? Would the owners vote to modify the game in such a way that directly impacts their bottom line?...

I'm not saying there's overwhelming evidence that the machine didn't work. Quite the contrary - there's more evidence to support it did work. However, I think it's a fallacy to say that the movie is a trick in and of itself, but then to say that it's not possible the audience is being tricked.

There's a theory/belief that the movie itself is a trick, that Tesla's machine never actually worked.
