    I have clear stated that hunters can have hunting weapons (which don't have to be either automatic or semiautomatic), and you can have a gun to protect yourself, which doesn't need to be those either. But I'm not all scared at all, which is why I don't need a gun.

    Guns are not "allowed". They are an enumerated right outlined by the Bill of Rights, we possess them, the BoR just restates those rights.

    Btw you said you wouldnt ban hunting rifles, I just proved you would. Just in increments as you felt the need and pressure to do so.

    Yes, with that pesky well regulated part. And no, I did not suggest duel use weapons couldn't be banned.

    You should really try to understand the text of the 2nd Amendment and the context of the Founders use of "regulated." As its not in terms of "regulations" but regulated as in trained. Regulars was the term used for trained soldiers at the time. Regulated means well trained. Not well ruled.

    so you adopt the idiocy that part of the bill of rights is a delegation of power to the federal government or the equally vapid belief that one has to have already joined a formed militia before the second amendment vests?

    Dude, you misread people on some issues because you fail to make reasonable distinctions.

    I've read that view, as I have read court decisions. The prevailing view set by precedence is that they can be regulated.

    I merely understand that the precedence has already been established.

    Of course you don't need a gun, the nursing home is locked and has a security guard.
    Some apes are more equal...
