    sorry it does not because the founders are very clear on things which the USSC says the opposite.

    Not every person who owns a gun owns it out of fear...but there are a good number of extremely paranoid people who own guns. It runs the gamut. Hell....I live in Los Angeles and I never lock my doors, even when I leave the house. I've never been the victim of a crime involving my house, then again, I have always owned dogs and figured anyone who would come into my home for property theft probably needs the stuff more than I do.

    Not really picky about getting answers....just when I counter an argument, you just try to ignore it and generalize. As if you are making your point....ignoring reality is not making a point.

    And you just gave me a very silly reply. Frontier kids? they wiped out entire races of people? Really?

    You also ignored the fact that parents and the media are the ones teaching kids to fear guns. Didnt address it or the analogy that proved it is all about perspective and not actual body count....cars.

    Also still never managed to provide any examples of people carrying their firearms legally in public and accidentally harming anyone else. (Just further supports my point that your fears are baseless...they are yours and you are entitled to them of course, but it's arrogant to have no real reasons to support those fears and then desire to force restrictions on others.)

    You have had your arguments countered and are now bobbing and weaving to avoid answers. I dont care if you agree with em, not in the least. But at least offer valid arguments in return instead of silly garbage to avoid doing so, like frontier kids wiping out races of people.

    That's nice. I'm a Democrat and pretty liberal.

    You live in Los Angeles.

    I digress but living in a gang invested city that's under foreign occupation is a damn good reason to be armed.

    But there is the law why every American of military age is suppose to be in possesion of a military style rifle. 10 U.S. Code 311 The United States Militia Laws.

    (a) The militia of the United States consists of all able-bodied males at least 17 years of age and, except as provided in section 313 of title 32, under 45 years of age who are, or who have made a declaration of intention to become, citizens of the United States and of female citizens of the United States who are members of the National Guard.
    (b) The classes of the militia are—
    (1) the organized militia, which consists of the National Guard and the Naval Militia; and
    (2) the unorganized militia, which consists of the members of the militia who are not members of the National Guard or the Naval Militia.

    Its right there in Article I Section 8 --- but you should be well aware of this since we have danced this number far too many times. You know what it says but you simply have a different interpretation of it.
