H.L. Mencken translates the Declaration of Independence into American English


By any chance, did Mencken also translate the Second Amendment into more modern American English? The message having gotten through to me clearly more or less, a whole lot of people seem to have trouble parsing it.

He’s an intellectual; ergo, his translation wouldn’t parse for a certain citizen group.

Who the hell talks like that?
