Thanks. Merriam Webster doesn't define it.

The term used is "arms"I don't really understand the need to have an assault rifle. Also, can someone explain to me if the constitution mentions unlimited access to any firearm, or if it's just to "firearms" as a rule?
However far you want to extend that term, it certainly covers all firearms.
Not any more than they could ban the Roman Catholic Church, under the argument that you can still be a Baptist.If the latter, then the government can technically restrict your firearms all they want, as long as you have access to some, no?
And then it becomes illegal under the NFA.
I could do lots of things that *would* be illegal.. but... just because I *can* do them... doesn't mean that I *WILL* do them.
Liberty is a two way road, you have to take the good with the bad.
George Washington didn't use his freedom of speech to win the war with Britain... He shot them.
