I think it is a dishonest waste of everyone's time to argue for hours on end about definitions and original intent and the Feds vs. the States etc., only to state, long after opponents have argued and cited in good faith, that it doesn't matter anyway because you have the right to your firearms no matter how the 2nd Amendment is interpreted. If you truly believe this to be true, I think it would be more honest to lead with that and skip the rest that you don't really think matters.
THIS is the problem you see? The dishonesty of a few people who basically say that they don't care how it's interpreted because they feel they have some sort of natural right to a gun (or any gun or any weapon or whatever the fuck you are talking about)? THIS is the real issue with debates on this subject on this board?

I don't think there are sufficient for this. Of all the things that are an issue with these debates, you are picking one that is just fucking stupid and silly and probably coming from a small handful of posters. Geez man, seriously??
