    I agree. Where the argument begins is when the term unduly is defined. My definition is different than other definitions.

    As I've stated, I fairly satisfied with the current regulations in Virginia and the US laws. The major exception is the inability to carry a firearm across the country without violating someone's law.

    I also agree.

    The problem is, the Second Amendment doesn't say that the right to bear arms shall not be unduly infringed.

    Which is why it needs to be updated to 21st. century reality.

    Actually, it is infringed on enough already, even without Constitutional support for such.... so let's just leave it as it is.

    I have always said that the threshold limit is this. anything the state police or county sheriff in YOUR locality can use, you should be able to possess with no more restrictions than a simple background check

    This, and military small arms should require a very basic license that anyone can attain with minor qualifications such as finger prints on file, serial # documentation, basic psych eval(to disqualify only the violently psychotic), no criminal/involuntary commission to a mental facility. And as well the 1986 machine/auto ban should be repealed to comply with the above.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    that is a most stupid reply. It is my opinion based on the fact that law enforcement personnel are civilians and the constitution does not discuss one group of citizens having different rights than others. and furthermore, under the posse commitatus act, the military is prohibited from engaging in civil law enforcement. since civilian employees of the government have no greater right to self defense or using lethal force than other civilians, other civilians should clearly be entitled to the same weaponry as such people

    additionally, by issuing such arms to civilian employees, the government entities are estopped from claiming that such weapons have no useful purpose when owned by civilians

    It is your opinion.

    Opinions are like noses: Everyone has one. Not that yours isn't any more valid than anyone elses, it just is your opinion.

    Just like any opinion of how the second amendment should be infringed.
