    Woooo...I think the 2nd amendment is very clear. Any weapon the government has, the people should have. We will need to be on equal footing if we ever want to overthrow the government like we overthrew the one in the late 18th century. That is the purpose of the 2nd amendment. I will let this picture explain it more easily:

    If you can carry it, you should be able to own it.

    So...I can have an ICBM with a MIRV nuclear warhead?

    COOL! I'll aim at YOUR house! And, your family and inlaws too!

    Is that OK with you?

    There is a whole spectrum of issues regarding arms.

    Say you are allowed to buy an AR-15. Should you have to register it?

    The AR-15 is semi-automatic. Should we be allowed to buy an automatic like, say, an AK-47?

    Should you have to register a handgun?

    Should you have to pass a background check to own a firearm?

    Who should be excluded from owning a firearm? Ex-cons? For how long?

    The mentally disabled?

    Someone who was hospitalized for a couple weeks for suicide? For how long?

    Someone on medication? Antidepressants?

    Should guns be banned from school zones?


    A simple poll does not answer these questions. A person may believe they support the 2nd amendment 100 percent, but feel that you should get a background check and register your gun, while another person may feel that background checks and gun registration violate the 2nd amendment.

    So it is possible for two people to think they are "pro-gun" and have wildly disparate beliefs about what that means.

    Just like the AR-15... The AK-47 is also semi-automatic, and perfectly legal to own. As for the rest of your points... The Second Amendment is fairly clear.

    tjvh, good thing it's not up to you to make rules for everyone else then, even though I am sure you would love to be emperor.
