no, the Constitution doesn't and we've discussed this before.
The Constitution gives every American citizen the right to have weapons
in response to this statement by OBE ... [color=amber] but our Government has been known to operated outside of its limits on a fairly consistent basis -- stretching their authority and bending it to their whim to meet the ends they want.
Can you be more specific as to how our government has actually done that?
yes, it does.
This infringes on the Right apparently
it cannot be both
If violence is shown they should lose the "privilege"
well, at least you got this part right
I think citizens should be allowed to own any type of gun
already is for a legal purchase.
Any history of violence should be a disqualifier
when you figure out which is correct then carry on ... until then, u got some studying to do.

It's funny that pro-gun conservatives keep bringing up comparisons like cars because their own example requires you to jump through the very hoops we want for guns in order to operate.
Many liberals are pro-gun but we aren't pro-stupid. There's a difference and it's perfectly reasonable to request that buying a SKS or an AR15 or even a classic hunting rifle require some proof of non-stupid. Seriously, it's not that much to ask for.
I don't care if you carry; I just want to know that you know how to responsibly handle it. Like they do with cars.
when you refer to a 'right' as a privilege, you DO NOT know or understand that of which you speak.
yeah, yeah, tell it to the ME.
What is silly about your response is that these weapons are understandably irrelevant in an armed conflict, with any current army in the world.
goodl luck getting a fully equipped AMD against civilians
10,000 men with these weapons against a Division of a fully equipped American military division is a joke.
this is the first you've posed such a question and still yet ... it's not even close to on-topic :shame:
I am asking you to provide something more or less unrelated to a neurosis in relation to why you think today the US would violate its constitution.
I think gun ownership should be a privilege instead.

your assumptions are unapplicable and not relative to the topic.
you said it, i called you on it ... now, get over it.
and you're also correct, i don't understand why ppl who cannot differentiate between the two think they have any valid opinion at all.
like i said, ppl of this opinion, should be punished for promoting it ... like it used to be.
could this be any more childish ?
again, a right is a right ... not a privilege.
nor is it eligible to be converted to one.
no one is saying you cannot say/promote it, however, there will be consequences ... fair ??
like i said, it's a right, it is not negotiable, is it ?
