    His arguments regarding rape and abortion, as well as Santorum's wife's abortion, etc, bolster this claim.

    In the case of arms, no it doesn't. What is says is that government cannot take them away. “…the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.” There's nothing in there setting up any circumstances under which that right may be infringed; just a simple statement that it may not. Period.

    I don't know what any of that has to do with this argument, but I am calling solid digestive waste from a male bovine on his claim to have a Class III license, or any legally-possessed Class III weapons.

    I believe that the Second Amendment fully protects every free American's right to own such weapons, but our government does not obey this Amendment, to the degree that it makes it very, very difficult to get that license. I simply do not believe that such a license would be granted to someone who obviously knows as little as he does about firearms; nor do I believe that one would care enough to go to the troubles involved in obtaining such a license without, in the course of doing so, learning a lot more about firearms than he knows.

    It's a little bit like someone claiming to have a driver's license, but on further questioning, revealing that he doesn't know the difference between an automobile and a pair of roller skates.

    Firearms are not the only kind of arms.If the second amendment is removed then you would not have the right to keep and bear those as well.Arms are weaponry.

    Well - issues would arrise when, on day one, a bill to amend the consitution was introduced.

    That individual and said supporters would be railroaded so fast it would make your head spin, the backlash would be severe.

    If it managed to make it to committee and out on the floor for a vote all those who remotely spoke in favor would be railroaded. . . there's be a streak of mischief at the least and especially countless stall tactics.

    . . . I doubt it would make it far enough to have a vote.

    Considering the fact we have an extremely low approval rate of our elected officials and a high incumbent reelection rate I do not think our elected officials have anything to fear.

    Re: If America banned the Second Ammendment tomorrow what would you do?

    This thread has become laughable.

    Let's try this again.

    To those who claim the 2nd Amendment exists to give citizens an ability to challenge the US government if it became tyrannical? That "right to bear arms" was taken away before your parents were born.

    Specifically, your view of 2nd amendment purpose and rights was taken away when it no longer was legal for citizens to own the same weapons the government possesses. You can't even own a functional Civil War era cannon or gatling gun and your pistols and rifles don't offer 10% more firepower than 100 years ago. You can't own grenades, cannons, bombs, machine guns, RPGs - let alone tanks, helicopters, aircraft or any other military vehicles with functioning military grade munitions systems. Even Bowie knifes are technically illegal and arrestable.

    You're clinging to your muskets and cowboy guns declaring you will keep those if you ever have to use them to defy the edicts of the government. What a joke.

    The fury and insults towards me is because what I write is not only obvious, put also makes it clear that people who claim they would go to armed revolution if the government tried to take away their 2nd amendment rights are just blowhards who likely would be the first to run and hide if trouble comes their way. The government HAS taken away your right to own arms capable of defying the government taking away your 2nd amendment rights as you see it. So, what are you going to do about it?

    PS, you don't have to be smart to have a Class III license or weapons. Smartness has nothing to do with it. If they read any of your messages they not only would never approve you for one, they'd put you on the no-fly list.

    I agree with every thought of that statement.

    Actually obtaining an FFL / Class 3 or more accurately Class 3 SOT license is simplistic. Not so for many of the "Destructive Devices" themselves however. Without a police chief signing off your chances are nil, other recommendations/endorsers advisable and even then it may not walk. There are numerous requirements such as a vault, agreeing to 24/7 inspection, 2-3 month background check, interview and it all finally at the BATF(E)'s discretion.

    I inherited a significant collection of firearms, piles munitions - much of which is "pre-ban" in nature and military collectables from a father I never met as his own known living relative. A state's attorney took care of all paperwork and legalisms along the way. It was no real challenge. Just let the lawyer do her work, sign where she said sign and put in the necessary security setup and storage.
