    So, you don't see any limits on the right to bear arms at all? The Second amendment is absolute? Remember, the term "arms" and "weapons" is much broader than "guns" and "firearms", and some American citizens have been convicted of violent crimes.

    We already have laws in place that cover those things.

    So... what you ( as well as the lefty gun control advocates up in Washington) are basically saying is.... that we should all be punished for the sins of a few. I always hated when my elementary school teachers would do that s**t.

    And yet, Chrisl posted that all Americans have an unlimited right to keep and bear arms.

    Hopefully. All laws are supposed to be Constitutional.

    If we have laws in place regulating (limiting) arms, and if those laws are Constitutional, then it follows that the right to keep and bear arms is not unlimited. That was the point I was making originally.

    We ALREADY have laws in place to take care of the problems you mentioned.

    Why don't you tell me what additional laws you would like to see and what you think they will accomplish.

    I can't really think of any right that's completely unlimited.

    Re: Would you like to see the govt confiscate legally obtained/owned "assault" weapon

    I am not one who needs to own muscle cars or bad-ass weaponry. I am quite satisfied with my penis size.

    But neither am I one who thinks others, not so lucky, should be deprived of making up for their shortcomings.

    If I thought confiscation would lead to less gun violence and the killing of innocent children, I would be behind such an effort 100%.

    But the problem is not the guns. It's the sick minded people who use them. Take the guns away, they will just use something else.

    It's GREAT to be me. --- "45% liberal/55% conservative"
    Diplomacy is the art of saying 'nice doggy" until you can find a gun.
