BTW you are living in a drug induced stupor if you think you can create a world without guns. All you can do is deprive people like my wife or your grandma. The criminals are always going to have them.
Did you have a response to these questions?
How does the argument that the 2nd covers any firearm you care to mention extend then to anthraxx and smallpox?
Given that the 2nd exits because people sometimes need to kill other people, what argument is there that the 2nd doesnt protect firearms (supposedly) built for that purpose?

So... what do you do for that 8 minutes while your daughter is being raped?
I used to be on board with not allowing convicted felons to own firearms,but as others have pointed out the government decides what is and isn't a felony and if you paid your debt to society by serving your time then you shouldn't be barred from owning firearms. Besides anti-2nd amendment laws will not stop those "prohibited" people as defined in the GCA from obtaining a firearm if they really want those firearms. After all criminals do not obey laws in the first place,this has been mentioned many times in many 2nd amendment discussion threads.
Do you have a solution james?
Punish the criminals,not restrict the rights of law abiding citizen.
Get tough on crime.Make prison a punishment,not a gay Sanfransickan university on the worst side of town. Remove the televisions, weights, libraries, and computers, they can spend their free time and get exercise by working in chain gangs. No conjugal visits,they are inmates not hotel guest, they are in prison as a punishment. No pussy rich boy private prisons,you get convicted of a crime you should get sent to a real prison like everybody else who gets sent to prison, not some country club prison. Bring back chain gangs to all prisons,not just Arizona, after all they have a debt to pay back to society and prisons cost money to the tax payers to run,so make some of that cost back up by bringing back the chain gangs. Feed the inmates bread(fortified with daily nutritional requirements) and water,if they wanted normal food then they should not be committing crimes in the first place. Bring back the sweat boxes,inmates need to fear and respect the authority of the guards. The worse thing to fear about prison shouldn't be some inmate making you his bitch or getting stabbed or beaten in a prison gang war. If inmates are able to do those things then apparently there is too much freedom in prison. The thing to fear about prison should be the loss of freedom and the loss of things(legal things) you used to do when you were not incarcerated.
"A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"
Cicero Marcus Tullius
