I am not seeing it! Who is making the argument for the right to carry any weapon at any time?
there is no right to carry any weapon at any time. never has been.

Like most rights, the right secured by the Second Amendment is not unlimited. From Blackstone through the 19th-century cases, commentators and courts routinely explained that the right was not a right to keep and carry any weapon whatsoever in any manner whatsoever and for whatever purpose.

For example, the majority of the 19th-century courts to consider the question held that prohibitions on carrying concealed weapons were lawful under the Second Amendment or state analogues.

Although we do not undertake an exhaustive historical analysis today of the full scope of the Second Amendment , nothing in our opinion should be taken to cast doubt on longstanding prohibitions on the possession of firearms by felons and the mentally ill, or laws forbidding the carrying of firearms in sensitive places such as schools and government buildings, or laws imposing conditions and qualifications on the commercial sale of arms.

Get over it. That doesn't infringe on anybody's constitutional rights any more than restrictions against yelling "fire" in a crowded theater or inciting riots.
If you have a problem with that, you're a mental case, and we'll take your guns away for being a mental case.
Agree, do you have a gun?

<quoted text>Assault type weapons? Hah, that's another diversion lily, any weapon can be tricked up to appear "military" the simple 410 Saiga shotgun manufactured in Russia and then tricked up by Mississippi Arms is still a 410 shotgun. Kinda like putting 22 inch rims on a Toyota Tercel.
Many (too many) who own small arsenals own them for the wrong reasons. I can see why some folks want protection due to their neighborhood be it thugs or large animals but the fkrs that are arming against a government that might take their arms are the ones that need Baker Acted. The yayhoo factor__the ones that drive 900 miles to hear Ted Nugent spew 2A venom at a gunshow and somehow don't realize that he's only doing it for a handsome appearance fee.
Well you know way more about guns than I do. I was thinking about the clips that can fire 30 rounds in a few minutes. The yahoo factor is huge

Then get educated before asking for something to be banned. If clips could fire the rounds you wouldn't need the gun, dummy.

Let's see how your logic looks when applied to this argument,
I would like to see background checks at every same-sex marriage.
I would like a ban on same-sex marriage.
I would like a ban limiting same-sex marriage to 10% acceptance rate.
You're pretty stupid.

Try again. But try to make sense this time.

"Arms" is a generic term. The founding fathers used that term on purpose.

You make a lot assumptions. Is that why you are such anass?
What gay folks do in the privacy of their bedrooms is none of my business and I could care less. That being said I am not for gay marriage, it is my right to disagree with gay marriage.
Interracial marriage bothers me not a wit. I know several interracial married couples good folks, have been to their homes and they to mine.
Why should I be subject to the whims of folks who would like to take away or restrict my right to own a firearm? Or to sell a firearm? Or to assemble with others of the same ilk.
Why should my right to not purchase a product, health care, that I may not want?
You should start thinking like a real American and understand that all do not agree with your stands. Do you realize that you live in an America where folks are permitted to have views that disagree with yours?

Re: firearms: you're really bad at this. No gay marriage was ever used to kill people.

You should not have a right to not purchase healthcare because if you don't purchase healthcare, then we all have to pay for you.(That's a completely conservative idea, btw.)

You can have all the bigoted opinions you want. Racists are still free to live in America, too.

But our laws don't reflect or respect the views of racists. Nor should they reflect the views of anti-gays.

Your opinion can't affect my marriage - unless America is full of crap and is only the land of the free for you.

In 1989 the budget for the federal Department of Education was $22.8 billion. By 2008 it was $68.6 billion. Even adjusting for inflation, federal education spending almost doubled. So more federal money was flowing from Washington into education; much more, of course, was spent by local governments, the traditional funders of schools. If the money had been used well, we might have expected federal spending to actually go down. Public schools need to go. They are a waste of tax money. Let the privet school do what they do best.
Abolish the Dept. Of Education and kids will benefit immediately. What a waste of money.
