    Yeah, & obviously all of those ammo manufacturers can't possibly make more ammo, right? You think it's all "supply & demand"? We have one hell of a demand, so where's all the supply? Some bitch tried to sell me .45 BALL AMMO at Big 5 for over NINETY CENTS A ROUND!!! Trying to tell me,"Oh, it's a 'special home defense round'". If I could have slapped her & got away with it, I would have.

    Ammo makers could be making a killing right now, but no ammo to be found? yeah, that's NOT a "right-wing thing". NOT selling ammo to people who want it is something else entirely; it's a GUN CONTROL THING. If you can't get away with controlling the guns overtly, you control them covertly by what goes IN THEM.

    Because no one in SoCal, Arizona or Texas has anything to fear from armed drug gangs, social discord or the associated spillover effects, they should stop the flow of firearms to those states first. You know, as a sign of good faith by the U.S.

    From the AP off Yahoo today:
    A U.S. military report just five months ago raised the specter of Mexico collapsing into a failed state with its government under siege. It named only one other country in such a worst-case scenario: Pakistan. The assertion incensed Mexican officials; Obama's team disavowed it.

    *(if you care, the largest slice by far were revolvers, although you actually have to research the topic to find that out)
    I'll have to hunt for the stats, but if a criminal is using a revolver, it's almost always STOLEN. So, our gun laws have little to no bearing on it's acquisition or use by criminal elements ...

    AND if such guns are making their way down into Mexico, they're being pipelined in by Mexican gangs over here, gangs that are populated primarily by ILLEGALS.

    So, you wanna fix the problem? Take care of the illegals, & leave American civil rights alone... AGAIN!

    Please elaborate. It's my understanding we've managed to license operation of dangerous machines without significant destruction of civil rights.
    What part of the Constitution deals with "dangerous machines"?

    Yes it has been proven, and that's why the issue of voting tests was brought before the Supreme Court and declared unconstitutional.

    which part of the constitution deals with crowded theaters? Please don't make a radical constitutional argument you don't understand.

    The constitution had almost nothing to do with personal arms, actually - the fathers would no more bother enumerating the right to own a personal pistol or rifle then they would the right to own a wrench.

    Note:No, I am not at all saying the 2nd amendment refers to the national guard.

    also, does all case law pertaining to voting now apply to guns or are they sensibly partitioned under the law because of, you know, how little they have to do with each other?
    There's no choice but to confront you, to engage you, to erase you. I've gone to great lengths to expand my threshold of pain. I will use my mistakes against you. There's no other choice.

    If you think guns scare them, which is why they want to take them away from you; what to you think legitimate martial skill does do them? You can't take that away from people.

    I have spoken to people from the old USSR who told me they did combat sambo in the dark with the lights off.... so they would not be seen or caught.

    Nuff said.
    I always knew mASSachusetts was a really gay (no homo) place, but that part about "non sporting martial arts" really just makes me want to beat up some of their law makers. Where did you hear about this? Is there an article?

    P.S. Did you know they required (maybe they still do) people to have a firearms license to possess a nail gun, or spend a year in prison?

    What do you think that the 2nd Amendment is all about, then?

    The First Amendment right does not include yelling, "Fire!" in a crowded theater.

    But, you know that already.

    Unless there's a fire, or you have reason to believe that there is one, which is why Holmes made sure to say "falsely" in his opinion.

    Incidentally, the opinion was outrageously bad anyway and the theater analogy was a strawman given the speech (anti-war/anti-draft leaflets) being suppressed. Luckily, this narrow view of the first amendment has since been overturned.
