WOW that has never been in any medical books I have read and really hard to believe. A fetus has a heartbeat after 22 days and most women do not know they are expecting until their first period is missed - which leaves MURDER when an abortion is performed.
You are an old man and I am a woman teling this to you as a fact. Just because it isnt written in any book I can also tell you that idiocy does not exclude doctors. From the moment an egg is fertilised physiological changes starts occuring within a woman's body and since each person is different these hormonal changes manifests themselves in various ways. Some women go through an entire pregnancy and not know they're expecting whilst others will experience some type of sensation from the outset.

That can't be. Mexican citizens cannot own guns. Who is doing all of the shooting?
Same for Chicago and they had the most killings in the state of Illinois over 500 in one year.

So you are saying a woman carrying a fertilized egg is not a baby?

There is already regulations, laws and restrictions on the books so there is no need for more when the government doesn't enforce the ones they already have.
Very true
However the gun lobby have knee capped enforcement of those laws.
And thier allies in Gov't have also dragged their feet or refused to reimpose items like bans on military arms and munitions. All this happens often enough to make my question valid, your answer is that your in favor of a full enforcement of existing laws, which i must assume ,you consider Constitutional. I agree 100%. Would be willing to extend enforcement further, where exactaly is the point of most restrictive constitutional law.

The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.

No, I was asked if all drugs should be legal, I said no. Some guns should be illegal for private use.
On that we agree on both accounts.

Now all we have to do is find agreement on just which guns should be illegal for private use.

very bad people are in there. Where is there total government control? Or even a hint of it? Are you stoned?

Beyond that what does your statement have to do with anything?

No one really owns them but white racst and anti-government milita groups and drug cartels. Law abiding gun owners do not have them in their homes for protections and hunting.
