As another measure of "control" I would add all americans must take a test on the US Constitution so there is no confusion of the fact we are guaranteed our individual right to own nukes, if we so desire
See, the thing is, it's about freedom and those liberties afforded. Let me be even more clear -- it is about the right to defend my individual as I see fit against any opponent. Our forefathers did not hand in a list of approved weapons, they spelled it out "arms". If I put "nuclear" in front of "arms", it works for me
in my own defense.
I guess I wasn't thinking. It is a right, but it is regulated and that right can be taken away for certain things as I mentioned. In that way, it's not some un-adulterated "right". But I agree with you, it is outlined in the Constitution as the right to keep and bear arms.
We have a million reasons for failure, but not one excuse...
