never were. That was paranoid BS that dummies like you believed.
"This is a most invaluable liberty guarantied to every American citizen. A people in the full enjoyment of the right of trial by jury, and all armed, are free, and cannot be reduced to slavery. In our country happily, the people are generally divided into opposing political parties of something like proximate numbers. All whether belonging to the party in power or the opposition, alike have the constitutional right to keep and bear arms.
The free exercise of this right is indispensable to the safety of those in opposition, and it is equally necessary to the preservation of the liberties of all. It is impossible that half, or any great proportion of the people of a country, should be enslaved without that soon becoming the fate of the whole. That party which preserves its own liberties, necessarily achieves the same for the entire nation..."

"...A Just, patriotic, and constitutional administration of the Government would never attempt to subvert the right the opposition, of all the people, to keep and bear arms. It is a right formidable only to tyrants, usurpers, and oppressors."

- Senator Garrett Davis, Feb. 27, 1865,[THE CONGRESSIONAL GLOBE CONTAINING THE DEBATES AND PROCEEDINGS OF THE SECOND SESSION OF THE THIRTY EIGHTH CONGRESS ALSO OF THE SPECIAL SESSION OF THE SENATE,(Pages 1133-34).]

the gun nuts block all laws to reduce access to known criminals and the mentally ill and turn around and say that laws on the book aren't effective or enforced. Let's get rid of all laws and let the vigilantes, gangs and faux patriots shoot it out among themselves.
Your call, but the feel good liberals probably wouldn't fare well. I must have missed the law that puts the mentally ill in the ATF background check data base.

BUT you can be a politician. Then you can steal from the public legally.
You could do as Bloomberg and many other politicians, just order the police to escort you around with their guns.

Judge Greg Mathis
Mathis was denied a license to practice law for several years after graduating from law school because of his criminal past. He graduated from the University of Detroit Mercy in 1987. In 1995, he was elected a district court judge for Michigan's 36th District,

Judge rules former Mt. Vernon mayor can run again following felony conviction

The Constitution allows a convicted felon, such as Alaska Sen. Ted Stevens, to be a member of Congress, even if in prison.

Prison is not a bar to running for federal office, either. In 1798, Rep. Matthew Lyon ran for Congress from prison and won.

In Connecticut, according to staff attorney Ted Bromley with the state’s secretary of state office, a former felon can have the right to vote, run for office and serve in elected office if the person has paid all penalties or served all sentences in full and is not on parole.
