    weapons ban infringe on?  I can't think of any.  You'd still be able to hunt, target shoot, and defend yourself.

    •  The 2nd. (0+ / 0-)

      By your standard, what 'rights' do warrantless wiretaps infringe on? You'd still be able to call your mother, your friends, your grandma.

      Those who would sacrifice liberty for security deserve neither.

        ....and even Justice Scalia disagrees with you. There is no Constitutional Amendment that is meant to be taken literally or is interpreted as such.

          I have not, will not & never will support any infringments on liberty for percieved safety.
          I didn't support Gitmo, torture,the Patriot Act or Warrantless wiretaps, and I don't support any infringement on the 2nd amendment either.
          My reasoning is consistant.
          Why isn't yours?

          Those who would sacrifice liberty for security deserve neither.
