Re: “Reader: Progressives want to steal America as we know it

Odin;
Your insult notwithstanding, I would NOT be charged with a crime if I smashed an AK-47 or some Bushmaster xm15 model. The Constitution protects the rights of individuals, NOT the rights of inanimate objects.
I agree that keeping and bearing arms IS protected, BUT, there is NO provision in the Constitution protecting some imaginary right to manufacture a SPECIFIC kind of weapon, and there are laws currently regulating and/or banning the importation of any number of manufactured products. If Im not mistaken, there are laws on the books now concerning gun running. And banning the transfer of ownership of semi-automatic weapons in no way violates the owners right to keep a legally owned semi-automatic weapon or to bear it in some manner.
Youre going to have to come up with something better than an insult to justify the seemingly unlimited proliferation of semi-automatic weaponry.
