    To qualify as reasonable, a law must:
    -Prevent criminals from getting guns
    -Not infringe on the right to arms.

    When you find one of those let me know.

    The argument can be made that "arms", as used in the 2nd, covers "RPGs" and the like.But, the important part, is that it unquestionably covers any and every class of firearm.
    Seems they less gun control in the ME than we do here.

    Probably not - I suspect that the majority of the weapons you see, not held by the 'government' are illegal.

    WTH is this discussion about, again?

    Of course the militias, or military, should be regulated. However, people who make this classic argument against gun rights based on the mention of a regulated militia are forgetting something very simple in the interpretation:

    THERE'S A COMMA NEXT TO STATE, explicitly stating that both a regulated militia, AND the individual citizenry, have the right to possess arms.

    Good grief, it's so stupid.

    Does this mean the only purpose for getting a haircut is having a date? Really?

    So it is your interpretation that the state can regulate the militia but NOT the citizenry?

    I don't see how that would be an inconsistent view. Not that "regulate" as used in the sentence means "regulate" in the sense you're using it. But meh, either way.
