    How does the argument that the 2nd covers any firearm you care to mention extend then to anthraxx and smallpox?

    The comparison can only exist between weapons that were designed to kill human beings. And none of them should be legal.
    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?

    Neither, I do not see firearms as a problem. What I have a problem with is the chicken **** little pussies who want to severely restrict and or deny me my 2nd amendment rights. Sometimes a bat,pen,pencil,knife,sword or anything else that can be used as a weapon is not as efficient as a gun when it comes to stopping a criminal,especially if their is more than one criminal or the criminal has a gun(who buy the way doesn't give a **** about obeying the law so no anti-2nd law on the planet is going to stop him from getting a firearm).Law enforcement can not prevent a lot of crimes,after all they are no psychic. Besides the government has nothing to fear from a population that is not adequately armed or a population that is unarmed.
    "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"

    You can manufacture anthrax, smallpox, even cholera in the US if you want. However, you need the proper paperwork, licenses, and approvals due to the ability of those to be weapons of mass destruction. Much in the same way that heavy caliber firearms are classed as "destructive devices" in some states that require paperwork, tax stamps, and approvals.

    Once again, since you apparently failed to read my prior post, a car is not manufactured to kill people. Certain guns and ammunition are designed exactly for that purpose. The comparison can only exist between weapons that were designed to kill human beings. And none of them should be legal.
    There is no Constitutional amendment regarding cars or vehicles of any type nor any mandate about using said vehicles in a fight against foes foreign or domestic. Although I wouldn't mind going to war in an up-armored Lamborgini.

    My daughter's life is in far less danger if nobody is holding a deadly weapon, don't you think?
    Guns can be found in the hands of criminals even in nations that have banned their ownership. You should take a look at UK gun crime.

    I guess in your experience a rape could happen in under 8 minutes. That would be the time it takes the police to arrive in my town. I pay very good money for that kind of service.
    The 8 minutes would start after you make the phone call. Thats assuming you have get to make it. Otherwise, yeah the cops will be sure to document everything and make a COPS episode out of it.
