¡RACISTA! ¡Racista, maing!
No, they should be shot in flagrante, by their 'victim'.
There are three key precedents that prohibit the government from banning semiautomatic firearms. U.S. v. Miller - Protected arms are those "in common use" that "bear some reasonable relationship to the preservation . . . of a well-regulated militia". D.C. v. Heller - "The Second Amendment protects an individual right to possess a firearm unconnected with service in a militia, and to use that arm for traditionally lawful purposes[.] McDonald v. City of Chicago - "We therefore hold that the Due Process Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment incorporates the Second Amendment right recognized in Heller.” These are not mere inconveniences for the Democrats’ argument, they are fatal to it.

You know that when Madison wrote that Amendment, it only prohibited the federal government from infringint the right. Since, we have the 14th Amendment and the McDonald holding. You really need to update your database.

The authorities didn't escape without casualties at Waco, Jay. They won't escape without them in the future, either.

Lonely, the heart and soul of this monstrosity is the institution, by all signatories, of a manufacturer-to-end-user registration of all small arms. You can't get around it. Historically, registration has been followed by confiscation. We simply don't trust Obama (or anyone else, for that matter) to allow him to have that mechanism in place.

Since it is precedent, it is settled law. Stare decisis will prevent any meddling with it.
