    And if literal "intent" of the item, in so much as you're suggesting "intent" here based on it's primary purpose sans any context, is justification for actoin against it then you're obviously also a proponent for variations on prohibition since the "main function" of alcohol is poisoning.

    Laws don't work like that sooooo...
    Yeah they do.

    "We feel like you are dangerous so you will not be able to own a gun"

    In both cases a person is being deprived of a right due to an action they taken and an assumption of potential future action they may take. The primary difference is one of those rights you're fine with taking away and the other you're not.

    No, they are use to cause harm. That's their purpose. Bullets are used to enter and destroy flesh. The weapon can be used as a tool for defense or hunting or recreation, but the purpose of it is to cause harm to another living thing.

    And sometimes causing that kind of harm is a good thing. The key factor is intent, not harm.

    Alcohol's main function is not poisoning, it's entertainment.

    The main function of an item is very important as to whether or not it should be regulated. A nuclear bomb's main function is to kill large numbers of people, but you could use it as defense against your government's overreach. Just because you want to use it as such doesn't mean we should allow you to have it for the purpose you claim.

    They call them AR15's.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    I do not disagree that there are times violence is necessary to defend oneself and/or family. But you use a gun to cause harm in the name of defense. Guns, by their very nature, is offense.
