    Before we go on, let me say that I basically agree with you and support the right to bear arms. I'm being devil's advocate to work out the details.

    Please back up and tell me how restrictions on assault rifles made handguns more expensive in the first place. I don't get that.

    Yes. But that doesn't answer my question.

    Do you have a constitutional right to anything cheap, like healthcare?
    No.

    You agree?

    I say absolutely. I would rather die than let that happen.
    Well that is the reason for the 2nd amendment.

    They had nothing to do with each other. We are talking about the AWB, not hand guns. But what does this have to do with the price of tea in China?

    No.

    You agree?
    I don't think the govt has a right to determine what kind of gun you have a right to.
