A well-regulated militia is in the Constitution, sure. But that's not what you guys have, is it.
Owning guns is a constitutional right in the US, as you know. I don't think this analogy works, dude.
Also, the Constitution does not give you the right to unlimited semi-automatic assault rifles, which did not exist when the document was penned. But the Constitution was talking about a trained civilian militia. Why do none of you guys ever talk about that when you cite the Constitution?
And guns are cool, okay, we get it. That's fine. Bubonic plague samples are also cool, and can be used for things other than killing. Are you against bubonic plague samples being sold to any American adult for use in garage science projects?
While you're talking about the Constitution though - you're aware that the Constitution is a document of its time, is not the font of all worldly wisdom, and even can (and has) been amended? If you're citing the Constitution, well, once upon a time it codified the institution of slavery in American life, soooooooo..... they got it 100% wrong on slaves and it had to be changed, but they got it 100% right on guns for their time, our time and all future times? Is that what you're saying?
