Subject: RE: BS: Gun ban - yep already
Maybe I didn't make it clear, Bill. The fact that I want the laws, is not the germane point. The fact that I already have the Constitutional Right, is the germane point. When you speculate on what the Founders would do, all you have to do is to look at how hard it is to change a Constitutionally granted right. I have the right to keep and bear arms. For anyone to take that right, the burden of proof as to the reason is on them. And no one yet has demonstrated how taking away the right of lawful, responsible, gun owners to their weapons would affect in a positive way the problems they seek to solve.
