    yet it is a FUNDAMENTAL right, one literally and clearly enumerated in the Constitution. Beware how you infringe on rights, even those you don't care for... for you set the precedent for infringements on other rights you may cherish.

    yes, the right to possess a firearm and bear it, is a fundamental right.

    but it is NO greater than all of the other Constitutionally guarunteed rights.

    and it is NOT an unlimitied right. it is NOT beyond any & all regulations and restrictions.

Of course, due to driving distance and the price of gas, I won't be able to visit it much.
    I am not completely familiar with the Shreveport area, don't get out that way much but there are a few long ranges here. It's true enough that getting distance practice in is definitely a hard thing to come by.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    Plenty to be had in west Texas. Lots of desolate desert land out that way.
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    Except for felons, the insane, children without parental consent, etc. There are lots of people who do not have the right to own a firearm.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    These are restrictions that are...

    Absolutely necessary to society
    Narrowly defined
    and the least restrictive means of achieving the end.

    Therefore they meet strict scrutiny, therefore I'm okay with that.

    Yet none of them appear in the Constitution at all. You seem to want to pick and choose what parts of the Constitution you want and what parts you're willing to look the other way on. If you're going to go strictly by the Constitution, felons, insane people and children have just as much right to own firearms as you do.

    I just think it's funny how people can declare "these are absolute, fundamental, inalienable rights... except where I don't want them to be."

    You're confusing me with someone else. Of course there are certain restrictions on all rights... but any such restrictions should have to meet strict scrutiny.

    Things like the AWB do not.

    I agree the problem in this case is that even rights have restrictions when it bumps heads with public welfare or safety etc. Like you can't yell "fire!" in a crowded movie theater etc.
