whoaa nelly!! i didnt say that i fully agreed with that statement WA. heres why i think the AWB is an infringment of the 2nd Am: 1. it is based on lies, myths, and more lies. 2. it has done nothing to prevent crimes from happening 3. any law that affects matters covered by the Bill of Rights and Constitution that is based on lies is UNCONSTITUTIONAL. 4. unconstitutional laws are an infringement of rights, imho. now, the AWB has probably done a lot for the economy of gunshops, as it has driven up the costs of firearms with cosmetic features and made it so that poor folk like myself cant afford them. i almost forgot....WA, what do you define the "Bear Arms" part of the 2nd as? the "Keep" part is easy, the ownership and possession of arms. but what does 'bearing' them mean?
