Yup, yup..... sure do....but it seems those pesky bullets just aren't mentioned.

I'm not a big gun person, but it does bug me how it seems "the man" wants to impose tight restrictions on this basic right. I've heard rumors about bullets and how they might be trying to "outlaw guns" by outlawing bullets. Well... I'm no lawyer, but without bullets, is a gun "arms"? The constitution says we have the right to bear arms, it doesn't say we have the right to bear machines that would be arms if you had bullets.
That being said, it doesn't bother me that fully automatic weapons and "people killer" weapons are banned.

Social contracts are only as virtuous as the people willing to honor them.

Pieces of paper written by men won't protect you from others intent on crushing your freedom.

Muskets are great and all but if George Washington could have had a canoe full of M16's or BAR's I doubt he would have turned up his nose at them.

It gets way too cold to walk around up there with bare arms, on the other hand it seems that there becomes a problem with the state constitution being able to trump the Fed. Constitution, I don`t know if that is what is going on up there or not but I would be willing to bet that there & most everywhere most crimes are commited with illegal arms. Those in power have to wake up to that, I was living in Miami when they gave all law abideing citizens the right to carry & the rate of crime went down.
