    All you gun grabbers that are upset by the fact the 2nd Amendment protects our right to own weapons... simple solution.

    Since no law that bans semi automatics will survive a court challenge and since no law banning magazine sizes will either, go for what you REALLY want.

    Ask for an amendment to repel the 2nd. Or are you afraid that admitting your goal is the elimination of all firearms will not pass muster with the citizenry?

    Sorry, but that's the dumbest "solution" I've seen anyone come up with...and that's saying a lot.

    I love my guns and want to keep them. I also support sensible gun laws.

    So explain what sensible gun laws need to be passed. Ohh and make sure they do not violate my second amendment rights or my supposed right to privacy.

    What do gun folks use those assault and semi-auto weapons for? Do you hunt with them?

    Are any guns off-limits for regular folk? How about an uzi (is that even a gun)? lol

    Just curious.

    All a supposed Assault rifle is is a semi automatic rifle with a detachable clip. Depending on the caliber yes in fact people do hunt with them.

    But hunting is a red herring, there is no requirement for my 2nd Amendment rights to prove I hunt. If there was hand guns would be banned since very few locations allow hunting with a hand gun.

    You are aware that in 1939 the Supreme Court held that in order for a weapon to be protected by the 2nd Amendment it must have been in use by the military, is in use or of use to said military. That was how they outlawed sawed off shotguns.

    People who love and want guns know there are already sensible laws on the books which are not enforced.

    You really do not fool anyone when you talk of gun rights support then immediately cast out ideals diametric to the preservation of that natural right.

    Just like Obama.

    How about self defense and home defense? Where did it state in the Second Amendment that the "right to bear arms" was supposed to be solely for hunting?
