@walruscarver2000The bullets and reload capability are also already out there too. My point is that restriction truly won’t stop anything. I’m sure your point would be to slow it down. Not allowing citizens to purchase ammunition will only take it out of law abiding hands.
@dtroutma“Note to the “hard right”: ANYONE who discusses using firearms to violently overthrow the government, needs to move out of THIS nation, rapidly, before being arrested for what you propose: TREASON! period!” Says the Tory to the revolutionaries. : )
There is a saying that says Use boxes in this order:Soap, Ballot, Jury, Ammo
I agree that if it goes past ‘Jury’ the system has pretty much failed. Remember, the chance of any “hard right” revolutionary group succeeding had about as much chance as a sneeze in a windstorm. It would literally take a military breakdown and defection to a revolutionary group. I don’t see any Marine doing that any time soon. We know that Semper Fidelis isn’t something they just shout for fun.
As for the moot point of ammo or weapons calibers. I believe the US Constitution as a living document has been interpreted many ways. I’m not trying to weasel out of this, because you have a valid point towards the practical nature of the 2nd amendment. While I am not an attorney I do believe this amendment does allow for an interpretation towards more open gun ownership. Do I think that we should open the shop doors wide and allow anyone to get an HK 54-A jeep assault rifle? Not really, but for the law abiding citizen and collector it should not be an impossibility. As with my previous post, I am more concerned about open purchases at gun exhibitions where no check is required and guns can be sold to anyone. There are many times when Constitutional interpretation happen to my extreme dislike, but that’s why we are talking instead of shooting it out. Also, what concerns me is the misconception that just buying a gun will automatically be this self protection panacea. It takes some responsibility and time to learn how to use a gun properly and also when NOT to use a gun. I know bringing up these point is arguing somewhat against myself. I wanted to bring up the idea that some gun owners do see the need to find middle ground between “Buy Everything!” and “Ban Everything!”
