    Good distinction...

    The government can however ban contraceptives as there is nothing in the Constitution preventing it.

    The first case there is about right to privacy. The second case there is about equal protection. Neither one said that there is a right to contraceptives.
    The right to privacy is the point. The can't ban contraceptives because that would violate both privacy and equal protection of the 14th Amendment.

    Actually the government is not supposed to make any laws regarding guns. They do it. But they're not supposed to.
    I thought that they are not allowed to keep people from arming themselves. The 2nd doesn't say anything about not legislating certain types of weapons, just that they can't legislate all weapons (guns).

    Actually they can ban contraceptives. I'm assuming that your thinking that they can't because of Roe v Wade regarding the privacy? The difference between the two is that one is about an action. The other is about an item. And if they ban the item all around then it won't come across the problem of equal protection because 1: Its applied to an item. 2: It is not singling any one specific person or group out.

    This is the common belief among those that are anti-gun. Don't let them fool ya. There is no exception in the 2nd amendment on the types of arms. IE: There is nothing in the 2nd Amendment which states "shall not be infringed....except" It categorically states "to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed." Note the period after infringed. That period has a note of finality to it.

    Yes
    No

    Watching bits and pieces of various MSNBC shows after the Hobby Lobby ruling the rabid leftists on MSNBC seem to be claiming or implying that a woman's 'right' to contraceptives is being violated because an employer is not being forced to pay for birth control due to religious beliefs of that employer.
    This is hilarious. A dozen likes.

    I submit to the contraceptives issue. You are right.

    Regarding the gun issue... what constitutes "arms"? Any weapon? I don't think that the Founders had the first clue as to what technological advances could and would be made. Speech, religion, assembly, petition and the press are all pretty straight forward and had been done to death. They should have seen the evolution from the sword, to first explosive devices, to the rapier, to the musket, the application of pistols, etc. and applied that thinking to the 2nd.
