    No, but am seriously considering getting one.

    BUt it does have a limit. And as such is not an absolute, the only difference is where that limit is.

    It is as absolute as 'free speech', in that some some weapons do not fal under 'arms' in very much the same way that some forms of speech do not fall under 'free speech'.

    The limit here is one that is inherent to the right itself.

    According to you, not the conservative supreme court:

    "Like most rights, the Second Amendment right is not unlimited. It is not a right to keep and carry any weapons whatsoever in any manner whatsoever and for whatever purpose," Justice Antonin Scalia wrote for the majority. But it did allow for individuals to have guns for lawful purposes, such as hunting and defending themselves, he said. The majority clearly saw the individual right to own a gun"

    I think the problem is that it is not crystal clear.
    Yes, anyone can carry any weapon, and yes anyplace. Private property can deny it, but it must be clearly posted. Government buildings can prohibit it as well, posted outside the building clear and unmistakable.

    It's one limit is the same one limit that applies to all our rights. We may not infringe upon the rights of others.

    So an wife beating redneck can carry a M60 machine gun onto the kid's playground if it doesn't have a sign posted.

    So long as it's not posted as a "gun free" zone.

    Really. How about an RPG on a public lake? Or an ex-con bringing a couple grenades to a picnic in a public park.
