    Are they protected by the Bill of Rights?

    It always amuses me when anti-2nd amendment loons make comparisons to vehicles and animals.I guess when people do not see firearm ownership as a protected right in the constitution it is easy for those people to make comparisons to things that are not constitutional rights.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    They have to first believe that the constitution is relevant.

    Don't knwo about animals, but an auto, which wasn't around then, is as needed as a gun used to be.

    BTW, I'm not anti-2nd amendment. I know this wasn't addressed to me, but wanted to be clear.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    I would argue that they are via the Ninth Amendment, but that is neither here nor there. The car registration requirement only applies if you plan on driving on public roads, so it is not analogous.

    You support infringements of the peoples right to keep an bear arms. So yes you are anti-2nd amendment. Trying to claim the regulated part applies to the peoples right to keep and bear arms makes you anti-2nd amendment.

    your dishonest posts are tiresome-you claim NOBODY wants to ban gun shows and I proved you were lying. its like claiming no one wants to ban guns and when we prove they do you claim they only want to ban some guns

    "general ban" wasn't the issue

    we get it

    you are afraid of guns and you want to punish people who own them legally because

    1) you want to exorcise your own fears

    2) you want to screw over people who tend not to be a far left extremist as you are
