    According to you it would appear.

    Exactly, they would be in complete accord with the 2nd amendment, according to haymarket.

    No. Actually, that's according to you. Remember, you are the one who says that as long as a person is able to keep and bear arms, then the 2nd amendment was not being violated.

    Your statement, not mine.

    Quote my post where I ran off at the mouth about quarter staffs or eighth staves or whatever the heck you were claiming.

    You come up with a complete absurdity and then you try to sell it as my product. Get real.

    Here is what you said:

    A quarterstaff is an arm. A person with a quarterstaff is bearing arms. Therefore, according to you, this person is being protected by the 2nd amendment, even if he is forbidden from owning any other weapon of any kind.

    So now you are denying that a quarterstaff is an arm. Okay fine, how about a sword? A person carrying a sword is certainly considered to be bearing arms, and he is exercising his right to keep and bear arms. In your opinion, he is being protected by the 2nd amendment, even if every other form of weapon is prohibited to him.

    that is your opinion and you are certainly entitled to it.

    I have not said a damn word about staffs of any measurement.

    Well then perhaps you could tell everyone what exactly you did mean when you used the word "arms" in your quote above.

    I was speaking about firearms. If you want to include other things like these staffs you keep ranting about, that is all on you as I have never said a word about the issue.

    Firearms huh. The amendment says "arms", not firearms. But no matter...

    Okay, so a person carrying a flintlock muzzle loading musket can certainly be said to be enjoying his right to keep and bear arms. Therefore, according to you this person is being protected by the second amendment, even if he is barred from owning an other sort of firearm or even an additional musket.
