I wouldn't say that they meet your reductio ad absurdum status when we have civilian scientists arrested for having or selling nuclear material or knowledge, instructions for making dirty bombs readily available online, etc. All it takes is the drive to make certain things, and you can. Look at NASA; when the Apollo program began, ALL of NASA had less than half the computing power available in the average smartphone today.
My point is, do you folks agree that there are at least some weapons that civilians should not have access to?
Seriously? Espionage and gun control? Like Fast and Furious? Legal? You need a special license for auto. I would assume that you need a license to legally own a nuke. You talking about terrorists? Spies. Nukes are public...government. Firearms we are talking about are built by the private sector and available to the civilian market. Military arms and ammo are often not available to the civilian market unless a relic or curio. But then you already knew that.

We all know that, when the 2nd amendment was written, there was zero idea that WMD would ever possibly exist. It's always a rather lame and, dare I say, pathetic, tactic to bring completely absurd comparisons when trying to argue an issue about something that, in all practicality, is completely unrelated.
On that note, how ya doin' Silk? I hope you and your fiancee are well and happy!
That's my point, however. The founders also didn't know that we'd have assault rifles, semi-automatic pistols, tracer rounds (sickening to say, but some gun nuts are pushing to get them legal), and so on. They wrote The Constitution based on what they knew; muskets, single-shot pistols, cannons, etc.

Anywaynyway, my favorite part of the Second Amendment is the part that says "well regulated." The part that seems to get forgotten.

We are well-regulated, but can always be more well-regulated ad infinitum. You mix apples and oranges and expect us to take government produced WMD's and espionage and equate that with civilian gun control?
Guess the best way to stop such WMD's from falling into the hands of espionage terrorists etc. is to outlaw all WMD's. Right Arm. Give the anti-nuc and peace sign. Stop the government from creating and using all its WMD's and drones etc.. I agree 100%. That will work. Disarm the countries and it will decrease intra-country violence. Good thinking.

Not forgotten and not un-considered (is that a word?).

It also means that one who knows their firearms will be well-regulated and effective. Obviously the Supremes decision is not enough. What do they know? Get those in to make the decision that have the same limited understanding he does. Then it will be okay and not political.

Amazing how history is unknown and the appendixes and context of the articles are not read or understood. Historical soundbites or the Reader's Digest version seems to suffice for most. A nation with ADD.

Interesting article on the front page of today's ABQ Journal. Instead of banning guns or allowing any gun, the argument in the paper is that the person having the gun has the responsibility to protect and keep custody of it, thus precluding kids from stealing their parents guns and doing harm to others. It is just common sense, which today we seem to have too little of.

I disagree. That makes too much sense. There is also no bureaucracy to support with wild ideas like "negligent responsibility" which is already a law.

I would certainly agree with the ADD concept.

The most common disease today is CSD, Common Sense Disorder. We have politicians making laws who know nothing about what they are legislating, but we re-elect them anyway, mostly to keep them off the streets.
