    since you are on a gun thread are you willing to offer an opinion as to what the second amendment protects and at what point the idiocy of Cuomo 30 rounds then 10 rounds then 7 rounds then 5 rounds then 3 rounds (what the turd bloomberg wants) violates our rights
    No language in the Second Amendment says any of the things in your post.

    People can believe anything they want to believe. That is the funny thing about faith. It is all based on you believing something because you want to believe it.

    Those beliefs are also irrelevant to what the Second Amendment actually says.

    every few weeks some anti gun person makes this moronic statement and gets shot down.

    some guns are designed for anti personnel uses. some knives are too. I have randall model one knives that are designed for military use including killing. I have several knifes like the Gerber Mark II which only has one really good use-eliminating sentries. I have knives that are used for cutting fishing line, cardboard and steaks.

    and I have guns that are purely for target use so your rant is indicative that you are absolutely clueless about the subject matter

    that isn't the issue-the second amendment says that our rights to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed PERIOD

    but I was asking you to state YOUR opinion given you are here on a gun thread and the issue involves gun rights and compromises involving rights that should not be compromised

    sell maybe you will tell us what you actually believe the second amendment states and at what point it is violated. I believe many other posters have asked the same as well

    yes they do kill.....animals , those that wish to harm you or your family, and those who would try to enslave you.

    animals, criminals, and governments.

    If it was truly about saving lives then the tool used should be irrelevant.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"
