From the article:

""There is a right both under the Arizona constitution and the U.S. Constitution to bear arms. Nobody knows exactly what that means," said Paul Bender, a constitutional law professor and former dean of Arizona State University's Sandra Day O'Connor College of Law. "Nobody knows exactly what the arms are that you have a right to bear and nobody knows exactly what kind of regulation is possible." "

The Second Amendment is very clear, the RIGHT of the people to KEEP and BEAR arms SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED; very simple language but, Paul Bender, a constitutional law professor and former dean of Arizona State University's Sandra Day O'Connor College of Law with all of his education can't seem to figure out what it means.

Paul, if you can't figure this one out you don't need to be involved in the discussion.

The 2nd Amendment means govt can't regulate guns.

Obama: We're Working on Gun Control 'Under the Radar'
http://nation.foxnews.com/guns/2011/05/25/oba...

"On March 30, the 30th anniversary of the assassination attempt on President Ronald Reagan, Jim Brady, who sustained a debilitating head wound in the attack, and his wife, Sarah, came to Capitol Hill to push for a ban on the controversial "large magazines." Brady, for whom the law requiring background checks on handgun purchasers is named, then met with White House press secretary Jay Carney. During the meeting, President Obama dropped in and, according to Sarah Brady, brought up the issue of gun control, "to fill us in that it was very much on his agenda," she said.

"I just want you to know that we are working on it," Brady recalled the president telling them. "We have to go through a few processes, but under the radar."
