The Violence from the Left Upon Our Persons and Our Rights

I thought the concept of limiting certain types of weapons was well established in American law. After all, no one can own a 50 cal machine gun or fire an RPG launcher. There are other limitations on assault rifles so they cannot operate in automatic mode. I am sure the vast majority of Americans approve of keeping military grade weapons off our streets. I am confused by the conservative attitude which seems to be that any weapon invented by man should be legally available to us to use as part of our arsenal for armegedon. Does conservatism envision any limits of weaponry for home us?

"assault weapons" are already illegal-
problem is those on the left,who want to ban semi-auto rifles,like Sen. Feinstein-have no effin clue what an "assault weapon" is-
The term,in current use,was coined by anti-gun activist/writer Josh Sugarman in the mid-80's-when he wrote the article in which he introduced the term-
he stated that since the public is confused about the difference between an A-R-15, and an M-16-they will just think that if it looks like a machine gun-it must be a machine gun-
after continuing this bullsh*t,with the help of ABC,CBS,and NBc's showing photos of a browning .50 caliber belt-fed machine gun with every gun story-and calling it a "rifle'-it has added to the confusion-

Sure, whatever amount is prudential.

Does liberalism envision any limits to government?

conservatism is a cult of death,seeking to worship at the alter of decay,celeberating with it's arsinal of weapons with it's pope being the head of the nra;it knows no respect of personal boundaries,it completely refashions it's historic past with psudo-mythys of Liberty,whereas liberlism is a history of seeking to overcome that oppression.was j.edger hoover a liberal?was joe McCarthy?was -in another country,but the same stench-Hitler?no-but Thomas paine and Thomas Jefferson were.Conservatism,by it's very nature,has never done a progressive thing in it's entire existence,it is incapable of it.If it could,it would take us back to the caves.Pro-life?what a farce.It is lifeless.

That's exactly what the exteme environmental movement-a part of the left by the way-is currently trying to do-sorry,but we will be using oil and coal for decades to come-so-called "green" or "sustainable energy" is a farce-not possible to generate the power needed for the current population of the planet.

You are WRONG. Yes, it is possible to legally own a .50 cal machine gun, rocket launcher , explosive decive as long as the federal tax is paid. Military weapons are essentially THE SAME as "civilian weapons, minus full-auto capability.
I would suggest that you do a little research . . .

Before elected officials assume their honored position of representing the people, they are required to swear an oath, and pen their signature to the written version.  The sacredness of this covenant is marked by ceremony and meaningful pomp.

Every four years, we witness the very public swearing-in of the President during the inauguration.  The Vice President also raises the right hand on the same day as the President.  Traditionally, the Vice President also administers the oath for incoming senators in his role as President of the Senate.

Article VI of the United States Constitution reads, “The Senators and...
