I'd like to know how you can "bear" a nuke, a plane or a tank? :-) The founding fathers were talking about simple infantry arms, guys. The kids are just their excuse. what they REALLY want is to enlave or kill you and your having an effective means of resistance is intolerable for them. They wont let you have so much as a flintlock, no other country does, not for the common man. Not without "knowing" the right people, that is. Stand firm and USE the autorifles, if you have to. Or get ready to march to the concentration camps, because that is where you are headed. And soon, too.
