We really are on different planets.
    Yes... and yours is nowhere near here.

My point is that a gun owner, who by definition must be a responsible adult, should understand that certain guns should not be available to certain people. This opinion is not an excuse to begin taking away your guns, and is not in violation of the 2nd amendment.
    Banning any firearm is a violation of the 2nd, as the 2nd amendment protects all firearms.

    You DO know that the gun you mention, above, was purchased while the 1994 AW ban was in place - right?

    Why do you want to own an assault rifle? Is it in case you need to fight your government? Fend off an intruder? Do you plan to go hunting with one? Or is it "just because"?
    You are confusing the term assault rifle with 'assault weapon'. They are not the same thing.

    The response is: the same reason I want to be able to wear a jacket emblazoned with the words "F--- THE DRAFT" into a federal courthouse --- it is my right to do so, should I find it necessary.


    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?
    The term used is "arms"
    However far you want to extend that term, it certainly covers all firearms.

    If the latter, then the government can technically restrict your firearms all they want, as long as you have access to some, no?
    Not any more than they could ban the Roman Catholic Church, under the argument that you can still be a Baptist.

    This is a lie. -I- answered your question; you have failed to address that answer.

    Oh and here is a tid bit from the front page of the NYT:



    BTW I have not stated my position on the AWB. And when I see things like the above going I have serious concerns about these weapons even though I do think we have the RIGHT to own these weapons.
    Really?

    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.

    You're still talking about machine guns... When you're ready to talk about what your average citizen can own legally let us know.
    George Washington didn't use his freedom of speech to win the war with Britain... He shot them.
