Mental gymnastics created that belief. But its very clear. States cannot suppress free speech nor can they suppress the right to bear arms

Any clarification will only water down the original, and give a lower platform from which to perform new mental gymnastics.

What part of laws did you miss?

They don't stop people from doing bad things.

Again, define arms. What does the constitution define as arms?

Not very clear is it?

That's possible. That is why we need to be very careful, but at the going rate we potentially may see a further degradation of our right. We are not doing a good job at talking about this issue as a nation.

Good thing criminals like a fair and square fight, and that it's beneath them to prey on those of lesser physical stature.

In your world vision do we at least all get to keep semi-auto muskets?

At this point I'm not sure even you know what you are talking about.

My right to defend myself exists and can be done with or without a firearm.

I would think you would agree with that, but apparently you believe you cannot do one without the other.

That does not negate my point, and my point still holds true.

In their world vision we'd be using pencils and papers instead of smart phones and the internets.

All things being equally applied.

Did it ever occur to you that they didnt specify specific weapon types / models so that the document could keep up with the times?

These dues would understand technological process. They werent in the effing stone age.

In my world we would approach this topic a bit more seriously and would leave the childish retorts to the children.

Rights should not be eroded and degraded, clarified and expanded. They are our rights.


I hope you read what you posted and realize the error in such thinking.

We should always be looking to clarify and expand our rights.

What you posted contradicts itself.


Yea.

Here is a good example of a contradiction... a neighbor of mine that is a transplanted Californian liberal.

He has a decent collection of guns, including a few modded AR and AK variants.

Also a gun control advocate.

I asked him about that apparent contradiction and his reply was simply "I'm OK with owning these, because I know what I'm doing with them. However, I don't think that a normal person should have access to these type of weapons.

That's all I needed to know about liberals and gun control. Pretty much an Animal Farm mentality. We are all the same only some of us are better. Right?

Nice appeal to emotion.

My point still stands.

Our right to defend ourselves is not defendant upon the right to bear arms.

Gun Control.

Legalized discrimination/BIGOTRY.

BINGO!

And to keep it up to date with the times what do we have to do?

No. You example is absurd and is a logical fallacy.

In fact, you're being hypocritical because you are doing exactly what you claim of liberals.

Point of fact, SCOTUS talked about exactly that.

"Common use at the time" is the phrase they kept repeating, and "the time" meaning whatever the day in question is. In DC v. Heller, it was found that handguns are "in common use at the time" and thus protected.
