I dont think just any Tom, Dick, or Harry should be able to buy one. I will never buy one cause I dont need to hunt with anything more than 4 bullets if you cant kill something in 3 shots you dont need to be hunting but that is me.
i agree

The militia is to be regulated, but the right of the people to keep and bear arms "shall not be infringed".

You're correct, but I fail to see how the two quotes are contradictory to each other, referring to what the Federal Gov't. has proposed.

First of all, an AR-15 in .223 is an EXCELLENT weapon for hunting coyote, fox, etc.

Secondly - and more importantly - the 2nd Amendment mentions nothing about the individual's right to bear arms being predicated upon using those arms for hunting.

The Supreme Court has decided, our right to bear arms is not dependent on being a member of a militia.

I wasn't indicating contradiction, simply clarifying that the government, state government, was responsible to regulate the militia for its own protection, not regulate the firearms. Remember that when this was written the states were free and sovereign and associated into a voluntary union with each other; Appomattox changed that.

Nuh_ and ManeBrane, both excellent points.

This may seem off topic, but it needs to be raised in this forum and others.

Sometimes amendments serve to restrict rights later. I am a hunter, avid gun owning sportsman, president of our county hunting club. I just want to make sure this amendment will not hurt us later. Can anyone advise?

The following was appended to Article XI, Section 13 of the Constitution of the State of Tennessee.

The citizens of this state shall have the personal right to hunt and fish, subject to reasonable regulations and restrictions prescribed by law. The recognition of this right does not abrogate any private or public property rights, nor does it limit the state's power to regulate commercial activity. Traditional manners and means may be used to take non-threatened species.

This was an amendment, not an Amendment. It was a change or clarification to an existing article, not a new and separate article. It passed overwhelmingly, but the fact is that it changes the word 'right' to a term that represents a permission or privilege. This may be missed by those who didn't study their English homework, but if you don't understand the language, you can't understand what is being said.

Citizen X, this amendment certainly allows the government greater control and the people less authority. Your concerns are very well founded, and real.

Yes, good work btw! The "right" has now been brought within the purview of State statutory (by state legislation) and State regulatory subjection. This is what all of us were afraid of at the inception of this initiative. The enemies of freedom are many. Thanks for your remarkable efforts!
