Seems to me you might be misinterpreting the stupidity of the Commission.
As they clearly noted, the "army or navy revolver" language was a holdover from a clear attempt to discriminate against one group. There is only one possible way of eliminating the holdover discriminatory language - eliminate the "army or navy revolver" words.
Anything else, such as eliminating the ordinance alltogether, would go beyond their intent of eliminating what used to be discriminatory language. There does not appear to have been any support for eliminating the restriction against carrying a handgun - either on ther part of the Commission or on the part of a significant portion of the population.
If we are going to reject the cry of "racism!" when it merely signifies that someone did not get what they wanted, we must also reject the cry of "anti 2A" when it merely signifies that something did not advance the unconditional bearing of arms.
