State constitutions from the same time the Federal Constitution was written would make provisions for protecting gun ownership rights referencing either citizens specifically or "people" to be inclusive of noncitizens. It's well known that the second amendment was intended to apply to noncitizens by the framers.

Constitutional rights can be restricted through due process and thus federal laws banning convicted felons from buying firearms is probably constitutional based on current interpretations of the commerce clause. However, the current interpretations of the commerce clause clearly violate its obvious and original intent so federal laws concerning firearms violate the tenth amendment.
Other than trying to buy a nuclear bomb, I dont think any restrictions on buying firearms should be in place.
Jackboots always come in matched pairs, a left boot and a right boot.
Why don't you tell us what you think the second amendment means and what you want or don't want in gun control rather constantly attacking other peoples' positions without ever really defending one on your own.
