still attempting to reframe the argument I see

what rights and limits?

the ones you and the Feinsteins choose?

So the founding fathers, who raised an army of volunteers largely self-armed, who overthrow an established government, put the Second Amendment to the US Constitution in place, to secure the right to squirrel hunt?

the 2nd amendment isn't about types of guns or their uses, it's about freedom from abuse by the government itself

Which is why it's #2 on the list - right after freedom of the press
