Maybe the 2nd Amendement needs Revised? It's been almost 250 years.

If they had trouble passing the background check.

I understand that in some cases people with restraining orders are prohibited.

Or, if the weapon in question were not legal.

That's true. Neither of those conditions apply to me or most "average" people.

I can't think of anything banned under current law that I would ever want to own. I wouldn't own a full-auto even if allowed by law.

Then let's revisit EVERY aspect of the Constitution, because without the Second Amendment, there's no protection for the rest.

Ah, but I believe that they hypothetical was referring to some future transaction.

And you have already indicated your intent to violate any bans on specific weapons.

When is the last time a constitutional right needed to be protected by a gun? The 220 years since the Bill of Rights has demonstrated that Article III protects the rights more effectively than any gun.

Feinstein's bill calls for grandfathering, but no transfers, even to family. Therefore upon my death, one of my firearms would have to be surrendered to the government. That is unacceptable. I intend to pass that property to my son.

Randy Weaver's case negates your opinion. And I fear there will be more of those cases in the next few years. The government and its lapdog media will try and portray decent Americans as kooks and terrorists. That will only last for so long.

No it doesn't. If Randy Weaver was a reasonable person, he would have resolved his issues in court rather than taking the law into his own hands. Weaver's decision to live by the gun got his wife killed. When he submitted to the justice system, he prevailed. Article III 1, guns 0.

Strikes me that the Weaver case has some parallels to the Rodney King case that you and others have referenced.

A minor infraction became a major event. In Weaver's case there were multiple chances to meet with court-appointed counsel, to appear in court to challenge the charges against him and so forth. In fact, apparently far more chances for peaceable resolution than were granted to Rodney King as he fended off blows from a ring of police surrounding him.

Why would he trust the system that was twisted and manipulated into making him a "criminal"?

Some laws are invalid because they take away God-given rights. You're seeing that fight being waged today in the birth control mandate fiasco.
Some would say that gays have been fighting similar laws for decades. Blacks most certainly fought for their God-given rights. So spare me your sanctimonious tripe about "law-breakers."

So, tell me when Randy Weaver was convicted of a felony, served time in a state prison, then used PCP and led police on a 100 mph chase, endangering the public?

Because he lives in a society of laws. Also because people have a tendancy to die in gun fights.

And all of those groups found success by pleading their cases in courts and to public opinion. None of them needed to pick up a gun.

Well, the anti birth control folks haven't succeeded yet. Nor are they likely too.

Oh I don't know skimmer, I am not very familiar with the Weaver case.

Was Weaver high on PCP attacking arresting officers even after he was tazed 3 times?

Did Weaver supporters riot and burn down several cities?
