    Screaming fire in a crowded theater creates a panic, thus you have created a situation in which you have put people's lives in danger. Owning a gun does not do this. Purchasing ammo does not do this. Thus they are not comparable situations. Threateningly brandishing a gun is like screaming fire in a theater. If you want to make the point that you can not threateningly brandish your gun in public without good cause, I'll probably agree with you. Till that point, try to keep it apples to apples.

    Because the antifederals demanded them through the state conventions.

    I was contemplating this recently and I think Western society is decaying for the simple reason that people don't understand the purpose of government anymore. They have become lazy, have lost their revolutionary spirit, and want a nanny state to take care of them. I see it all around me. When something bad happens to one person, people cry out to have a law made about it. It's like saying, "Here you go government, have more power."

    The government used to know its place. Now it's becoming its own management board where the people just take orders. The same thing is happening in Canada as in the U.S.

    The government should never be granted personhood. And I'm against corporations being granted personhood as well.

    Therefore, having to pay for the gun is an infringement. By the Constitution, all firearms should be free. Again, how insane do you want to go?


    Sales tax is part of the purchase price.
    Purchasing the firearm is a precondition necessary to the exercise of the right
    Come again? Requiring payment is an infringement upon my right to have a firearm.

    Furthermore, by your reasoning, registration is a precondition necessary to the exercise of the right

    Therefore, registration is not an infringement.

    Considering -your- posting history and your penchant for deliberatly failing to understand the points made to you, you need not bother posting at all...
    lol. The irony here is amusing.

    You need to define the word your argument is based on. Or like all of your threads, it will end up worthless.
