    If you take the pro-gun/anti-ban position ---NO weapon should be restricted.

    The bigger question is what falls within the gray areas.
    How can a government arm its civilian employees with select fire submachine guns and 17 shot handguns and then have the audacity that other civilians have no legitimate use for such guns>

    So noted.
    The problem is that one side is honest about its motivations while the other side is not

    Us pro rights advocates have no hidden agenda-I believe federal gun bans are unconstitutional and any weapon civilian employees of the government can use-I should be able to own as well. When we achieve that parity, then we can talk about crew served heavy weapons or artillery but small arms are clearly protected. And that freedom trumps whether or not unconstitutional laws would make us safer.

    The ARCs arguments are based on a false premise-they pretend that public safety motivates them. We all know how bogus that is given they push for laws that have absolutely no relevance to making us safer-such as opposing CCW licenses etc. Since the ARCs cannot be honest with what causes them to push gun bans we will never have a reasonable debate with them.

    Simple posession of any firearm is no more a danger to public safety than the simple posession of penises.

    But then, isn't anyone with a penis is a potential rapist?
    Shouldn't they then have their rights restricted accordingly?

    I find arguing with hoplophobes intellectually unprofitable.

    Just wait. The more feminized the Dem party becomes the more likely such a scheme will be proposed.

    To anyone who thinks the constitution "allows" restrictions, or bans... consider these words.

    Firearms are second only to the Constitution in importance; they are the peoples' liberty's teeth. - George Washington
