"Ron Paul is a gateway drug to liberty" and I think you either know that or are about to learn. (That was Larken Rose who said that.)
Our rights are natural rights. The Constitution is an attempt to define them. However, the actual natural right is the right to defend myself, by whatever means I can avail myself. This right is unalienable. They can try, and they do. But gangs are the proof that people will arm themselves regardless of pieces of paper for or against their arms. They have the right to machine guns, because they took the necessary steps to get one. The laws matter not one whit to them, if they can find it, they can buy it. Gun bans will ONLY remove guns from the hands of "law abiding citizens" That is the truth - do you not see that?
