yes, in fact, it is. SCOTUS has ruled so many, many times.

restrictions on the 2nd amendment are as old as the amendment itself, check the history of it...
all of your civil rights have restrictions on them...

Sorry you cannot identify with the word VOTE:
sad you know so little about what is going on with the Bill of Rights and the 2nd Amendment.

46 Senators Willing to Trash 2nd Amendment, Surrender Sovereignty to UN If this would have passed it would have given the UN control over our weapons.

Obama Demands Vote On 2nd Amendment During Hartford Speech

Cruz, Feinstein tangle over 2nd Amendment as panel approves assault-weapons ban opps there goes my 2nd Amendment

Every one of these is calling for a vote to ban weapons and magazines.

Double standard

no treaty with another nation can abrogate our constitutional rights. you really should know this if you were a good citizen, but you have repeatedly shown you do not care about your own nation to learn about it....

your site on that is as misinformed as the other one that said US reps were voting on the second amendemnt...they can't do that.

you are easily misled because of your ignorance....

again your 2nd amendment had restrictions on it from the day it was ratified. whya re you attempting to talk about something you don't even know anything about? again....

When are you going to tell Obama all of this?????? You are calling Obama ignorant because he is pushing for the VOTES. I am glad to hear you say Obama is not a good citizen since he does not know about voting on the 2nd Amendment, neither does Fienstein. You should be in D.C. telling these people what is right. Obama and Fienstein are talking about things they know nothing about.

funny how you couldn't counter my facts that none of the links you gave show anyone abrogating...oh yeah, you are stupid...that word means infringing...oh shit...it means they are not screwing you out of your constitutional rights...

it is so hard to explain things to the profoundly stupid and ignorant...

why is it you believe these people that keep telling you lies? oh yeah, you are a cult mentality person. your whole life is built on a proven lie that you cannot come to admit to yourself...

that must be a sad and ugly life to lead...a known and proven lie in every single essence of what you believe and hold true...

Here are some facts for you, directly from the UN Program of Action, aka the small arms treaty.

"To put in place, where they do not exist, adequate laws, regulations and administrative procedures to exercise effective control over the production of small arms and light weapons within their areas of jurisdiction and over the export, import, transit or retransfer of such weapons, in order to prevent illegal manufacture of and illicit trafficking in small arms and light weapons, or their diversion to unauthorized recipients."

Most of you knew what he wanted to do, didn't you?
When I see how you uphold and love what he has done
and will DO, Its not hard to see where he and you wanted to destroyed this United States Of America.
There is little need o talk to those who love him, it now is past time for we Americans to stop what is
Happening, its possible, others have tried and we
grew a backbone and stopped it! Do you think
our President is reading this, he didn't think it
was important to give the fellow who showed what
the gov. was doing to us to even talk about it.
We know what his job is, hes doing It daily.
You who voted for this, do not pretend you didn't
know, Ignorance is not an excuse. You sold us out,
what are you going to do when hes setting in your
house watching you eat with food stamps. How low
will you allow us ALL to fall?? When I see the fools still trying to blame Bush, I understand
your brains haven't been washed, they have been destroyed! Welcome to America Mexicans, you have
entered the twilight ZONE... Has the 4th of july

again, he is not pushing for votes on the amendment. that cannot happen. he is pushing for votes on regulations of the 2nd amendment. which, as i previously pointed out, have been there since the day it was ratified...

nothing new happening here...

Equal protection & due process are in the constitution.

If the feds are going to recognize one marriage, they must recognize all marriages.

Federal law trumps state law.

The state doesn't have to recognize our marriages (yet) but they can't prevent the federal govt from recognizing them.
