    I thought it was the Bill of Rights, not the Bill of what you think is a Legitimate Purpose?

    Most gun nuts talk about the second amendment like it is absolute. It isn't. And to state so, merely displays an ignorance of Constitutional law. There is no right that is absolute. There are only rights that are "enumerated" which require more of a governmental justification to infringe upon those rights.

    Correct, and AR-15's are in common use and have a legitimate purpose. So they fit with the Supreme Courts interpretation of the 2nd amendment.

    edify us on your expertise of hunting? I suspect-given your politics, you are as contemptuous of hunters as you are of those who own weapons for self defense

    that is an apt description of Dr. King who wanted to expand the rights of Americans compared to people whose only goal is restricting them

    I agree that Dr. King was indeed a mountain like heroic figure.
