    If you want to wash with your arms, go to the river with the other old ladies and find a clean flat rock.
    what a silly clown...


    How'd you manage to get moderator status when you deliberately ignore the points made in a post and focus on a minor issue at the end merely to sound as if you responded to the post?
    What a stupid question.

    Why don't you focus on what I am saying, instead of what you want to hear me say and perhaps, just perhaps you won't sound so stupid.

    Look, elevate your game or I am gonna simply ignore your dumb ass....

    I agree-the federal government has no proper authority to ban marijuana.

    Half the stuff the federal government does is illegal-at least.

    he compares it to being on a jury. You have a right to serve but only in a collective group

    He was one of my closest friends in college but I don't agree with him on this. It is clearly an individual right-period--and the Federal government has no proper constitutional power to regulate small arms.

    No.... you interpret the same material differently.
    That doesn't make THEM wrong, It makes YOU wrong.

    Therefore, the right of individuals to keep and bear arms is absolute to create a pool of well regulated militia men who can be mustered.

    I can provide excessive detail, if you want.

    I will put my Savage tactical against any [assault weapon] any day of the week.
    You'll lose against my M1A Supermatch.

    The only possible rifle that could compare would be the Springfield M1, which is nowhere near an [assault weapon]
    Assault rifle?
    We're discussing 'assault weapons'. The M1A qualifies.
    And I do have to ask - why can't you hunt with an M1A?

    As to preserving the rights of arms, lets be realistic, banning [assault weapons] is a far cry from taking away the right to bear arms
    No more than banning the Roman Catholic Church is a far cry from taking away the freedom of religion.

    Do I change my position?
    Given that the assertions upon which you based your argument are incorrect - you should.

    The fact remains that the FF potected the individual's right to own the weapons necessary for that militia to be effective, and did not tie the use or ownership of those weapons to service in that militia.

    Do you have the right to own a tank or a F-16? No, so you will not have equal force with your M16, will you?
    You can argue all you want about tans and F16s and nukes... but it is impossible to argue that 'assault weapons' - indeed, any class of firearm - are not protected by the 2nd.

    His point was that a group of people cannot have a right that each of the people in that group do not, individually and outside their connection to that group, already posess.

    Interesting... that makes sense, and I understand that you don't agree. In all honesty, I am starting to lean a little more towards Individual Right for some reason, though I still think that there is a Collective Right sewn in there somehow.

    Perhaps that is so... I have been wrong before. But so has SCOTUS.
