    No, get rid of them too.

    All firearms laws are illegal. All of them. Each and every one. Federal and State.

    The constitution spells out exactly what Congress can do, and any power not specifically given to congress is reserved to the people. There are many powers given to Congress, and rightly so, imo. To coin money, to establish an army, to regulate interstate commerce. To declare war.

    You will not find in the constitution anywhere, the power to regulate arms given to the Congress.

    The ATF: Unconstitutional.
    Any and every gun law of any and every kind, ever: unconstitutional.
    FOPA: Unconstitutional.
    Militia Act of 1903: unconstitutional.
    Gun Control Act: unconstitutional.

    Congress has exactly zero authority to make any law in any way whatsoever respecting private ownership of arms.

    What if you could only own a computer made before May 1986....when I say I want a modern computer I'm talking about Samsung Galaxy S4, not a pre-Tandy with 4 megs of memory and maybe a rudimentary dial up modem if I'm lucky. I want the 4G network of firearms.
    Dude thats a phone not a computer lol

    Dude a Droid IS a computer. And I don't mean in the technical sense. In may ways, my droid is more powerful than my computer. It has the same internet connection and up/download more people contact me through my phone than through my computer, internet, it plays many many games, it manages ID security, it takes video....and oh yea, it also makes phone calls.

    The only things my desk-top has over my Droid is a better graphics card and a bigger screen. I would include my Razor Nostromo in that short list but I'm pretty sure there's a way for my Droid to use it also.

    Everything I can do on my computer I can do on my droid, including post on this very website, just not MMORPGs. My Droid fits in my pocket, that's a fair exchange.

    When my son mentions in passing some movie he saw a commercial for, I've never used my desk-top to search for that movie, play it's trailer, buy tickets to see it that evening, then use m desk-top to navigate my way to the theater I've never been to which I just bought tickets for.

    You mostly described the internet. How much does your phone do in dead zones? I have a old computer but it still does many things that my phone cant do. But I guess it just depends what one does, if its just the internet then a phone is fine.

    Absolutely not.
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    I won't answer the question but I will say this. We essentially have two Americas, IMHO. One are responsible, law abiding, God fearing, defenders of freedom and their follow citizens who would never intentionally hurt anyone. Two are irresponsible, hotheaded, thugs, criminals, narcissists, high on dope, chip on their shoulders who don't give an F about anybody but themselves and then only maybe. The problem is its difficult to give the first category gun rights without giving those same rights to category two because the law treats everyone equally. Therein lies the problem. Compare to: Should any sovereign nation have nuclear weapons? I think America should. I think Iran and North Korea should not.

    Getting a gun should be a free and protected as getting an abortion. At least the person I kill will have committed a crime first.

    I spit at lots of people through my computer screen. Not only does it "teach them a lesson" but it keeps the screen clean and shiny.

    I would love to get my grubby little hands on a Ultimax 1000 .223 cal machine gun. That's a sweet machine.

    I used to be a computer programmer/data analyst. That career collapsed out from under me in 2002-2003. Back then, I worked with high-end desktop-type computers.

    A modern smartphone is actually a much more powerful computer than the computers on which I worked when I was in that business. I find it funny that we call it a “phone”, when telephony is really a small minority of the use that most of them actually get. It's a computer. And it's mostly used as a computer.
    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.
