The appeals court noted, more than once, the state law does not ban all semiautomatic assault weapons and that the ones it does ban " do not share the features that make handguns well-suited to self-defense in the home," such as being easily accessible or even able to be used with one hand by a homeowner who is dialing the police with another. Hand guns were invented with the intention of killing people. (WWLP) – Assault weapons have been banned in Massachusetts for nearly 20-years, but Attorney General Maura Healey said, that hasn’t stopped the sale of copy-cat assault … The record contains ample evidence of the unique dangers posed by the proscribed weapons. That would include a variety of regulations to prevent the many accidental deaths due to fire arms. ANY firearm can be used to commit mass murder. You have to prove you're not dangerous, and then you get your "I am a responsible citizen" card that lets you buy...well it should let you buy anything, but it doesn't, and that's where I don't like Mass gun laws. We can argue that the Commonwealth government has the right to protect its citizens when the federal government abandons protection of the citizenry. Viewed as a whole, the record suggests that wielding the proscribed weapons for self-defense within the home is tantamount to using a sledgehammer to crack open the shell of a peanut. The court contrasted such heavy weaponry with lightweight stun guns, which Massachusetts also tried to ban but which the Supreme Court said were allowed by the Second Amendment. Had he still been alive, he would probably have advocated the same for Afghanistan. Healey decided that anything with any part interchangeable with any AR-15 is illegal, but the Mini-14 isn't illegal. But that would include mandatory training with a certification. Nevertheless thank you for providing examples of how much supporters of the false interpretation of the 2nd Amendment will twist and turn to deny that the 2nd Amendment is not about a right for individuals to own guns JUST BECAUSE THEY WANT to own them.

Do you really believe Kavanaugh was hosting rape parties as a kid or are you just unconsciously repeating a meme? In logical theory it doesn't make sense you are right.

If the Amendment was to declare that owning guns is a right then it would have been written and ratified with those words. But then if you're too dangerous to be trusted with an AR...why would we trust you with a Mini 14, or a Glock, or a Beretta Storm, or for that matter...why the hell would we not lock you up for our own safety?

Only these weapons and copies or duplicates of these specific pistols are prohibited under the ban, and none appear on the approved list. Look. It is, therefore, not surprising that AR-15s equipped with LCMs have been the weapons of choice in many of the deadliest mass shootings in recent history, including horrific events in Pittsburgh (2018), Parkland (2018), Las Vegas (2017), Sutherland Springs (2017), Orlando (2016), Newtown (2012), and Aurora (2012).

Where law is concerned it matters to be precise. It's the murdering that's illegal, not any tool that might facilitate the crime. Or maybe you're not. If you don't the Constitution then, oh well, it is what we are stuck with. In other words just as cars can be regulated so can guns. Your defense of Kavanaugh's drunken and belligerent behavior fails. Read the history of human rights. And if we define arms in the context of militia, nukes aren't arms. LCMs [large-capacity magazines] exacerbate this danger, allowing the shooter to fire more bullets without stopping to reload. People think nothing of trying to settle arguments with violence Nor does it circumscribe in any way the fundamental right of law-abiding, responsible citizens to possess handguns in their homes for self-defense. 2. They fail because knives, fire, etc. 3. Semiautomatic assault weapons permit a shooter to fire multiple rounds very quickly, allowing him to hit more victims in a shorter period of time. That can be interpreted as not infringing. And just the nature of a semi automatic long gun like an AR-15 will tell you that banning it would reduce the number of victims in these random killings. I'm more worried about federal courts deciding that flimsy "intermediate scrutiny" is appropriate for a core natural right identified in the Bill of Rights rather than "strict scrutiny" which has traditionally been applied.
