    And that is by amending the Constitution. If my right is not to be infringed, then any control over my right to bear arms is an infringement. Yes, I mean to say that I should be able to possess any weapon that is at the disposal of the President. If the justification for my right to bear arms is that I may need to form a militia, then I should have access to the weapons a militia may require.


    In case you don't know what it requires to amend the Constitution:

    Constitutional Amendments - The U.S. Constitution Online - USConstitution.net

    Not that I think the Constitution is something perfect. I'd prefer pretty much zero government.

    Obama has been handed another 4 years to accomplish just that.

    Obama has nothing to do with amending the Constitution. He literally is not a part of the process at all.

    He is going to just bypass it I'm sure and do an Executive Order or Congress will pass another law like the assault weapon ban, most likely the EO.

    The right to bear arms has already been infringed.

    There has been a lot you can't do for a LONG time. I was just saying it continues unabated today and is being increased rapidly.
