    no. You cannot lose rights you do not have in the first place. There is no such thing as the right to have any weapon of your choice regardless of any other consideration. It simply does not exist.

    There is no loophole. The Brady Act works exactly as the Democrats who wrote it, voted on it, signed it into law and affirmed it intended it to work.

    It's an argument that outlines the trivially obvious fact that, without guns, there can be no gun violence.

    And I have no problem with the Court saying it was an individual right because it clearly evolved as such over the past two centuries.

    None of that however restricts government from passing laws to not allow certain types of guns providing the basic right can still be exercised.
    Still don't understand what "infringed" means, LMAO!

    Yes, tell us another one.

    The NRA owns Congress and the Republicans are there compliant bitch more than willing to do their bidding and ask for more.

    So what would happen if some killer slaughtered 100 NRA members at one of their conventions?

    Would that change anything?
    No, gun control legislation is not the solution to mass shootings. It has been going on since 1964. We need to get back to insane asylums. Even that wouldn't have prevented the Las Vegas massacre.

    There you go, making up criteria. Welcome to the first Haymarket evasion, to widen a definition to the point of absurdity to claim any restriction is allowed because some have been allowed.

    Not any restriction but the right is also not unlimited either
