    You do not speak for the tenth amendment regardless of what it says for itself and regardless if it is relevant to the topic.

    the tenth amendment-though pissed upon by the patron saint of the big government left, the turd FDR, pretty much slaps down most of the anti gun nonsense the Dems wish to impose

    It speaks well enough for itself.

    The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.
    The five great lies of the Left Wrong:
    We can be Godless and free. • “Social justice” through forced redistribution of wealth. • Silencing religious opinions counts as “diversity”. • Freedom without moral and personal responsibility. • Civilization can survive the intentional undermining of the family.

    Like most of the Constitution, the language is clear and plain enough, unless you don't agree with it, and are determined to find some way to twist it to support some policy position that the plain language doesn't allow. But then we've seen this very thread go on for more than a thousand posts, mostly dedicated to someone trying to twist the Second Amendment in exactly that way.

    That is a very excellent point.

    Its a good thing then that the Constitution speaks loud and clear in Article I, Section 8 then.

    How long would it take you to get your key and unlock your gun if a scumbag was busting into your bedroom at 2:30 in the morning?
    That's why I like the idea of biometric locking.

    Its all there for you just as it was hours ago when you ignored it the first time. And the second time. And the third time. And so on and so on and so on where you end up still ignoring it even now.
    No contemporaneous sources? No constitutional scholars? Nothing at all besides for your own opinion?
