    Liberals often seem to want to forget there is a Second Amendment, but I support it. Not because I am a hunter or anything like that. I have heard supporters of this amendment describe it in terms of freedom from the potential of a tyrannical government. I think this makes sense.

    My only question is based on this premise where is the line in terms of the regulation of weapons in the hands of the civilian population?

    only if i can have ground control, ;-)

    Kidding that should be monitored.. but we should have the opportunity because we will end up having to defend ourselves in the future individually. Get ready.

    kids, myself included, store water, bullets, and make sure your lady has birthing hips. ;) Learn how to farm and become more educated.

    The only weapons that should be restricted from the hands of the civilian population are those which they cannot properly secure from being stolen by those who are not law-abiding citizens.

    So long as you've got the secure storage you should be able to own just about anything... mortars, machineguns, etc....

    I base this on the fact that one of the biggest things the Redcoats were trying to destroy in Lexington and Concord, and two weeks earlier when they marched unsuccessfully on Salem, MA were..... CANNONS, CAISON, and SHOT (cannonballs and powder). The "civilian" military/militia of the day included Infantry, Cavalry, and Artillery units. I don't see why the modern civilian gun owner should be any more restricted than our forefathers were.

    I believe that the second amendment is outdated. You can have any gun you want, as long as it was available at the time the amendment was put in. That means muskets and nothing else.
