I agree I do not get your contention that the 2nd Amendment gives an absolute right to own any firearm - neither do the courts (including the Supreme Court in the Heller and McDonald decisions entered in the past 5 years). if you are contending that you have the better argument on that walk me through why that is so based upon applicable legal precedent rather than boilerplate quotes you pulled from some website. Otherwise your argument is reduced to your opinion that you are right and I am wrong
