Obviously it's a second amendment issue, how can you keep and bear arms to protect against tyranny, without ammunition? A firearm is only a blunt striking object, without ammunition.
So where do you draw the line? Are you familiar with the New York State SAFE act? Do you consider it a second amendment issue?

Of course it's a second amendment issue. Don't twist this into something I never said.
How? Its no different than the bump stock ban? Since the features are not a gun, and no guns were banned/confiscated/destroyed from their banishment, is it actually a Second Amendment issue or is it really a 9th and 10th amendment issue?

Ny safe act did a lot more than ban bump stocks. Red flag laws, registration, waiting periods, etc.


Those are all infringements.

Yes, and the SAFE act likely has the highest rate of non compliance by citizens and law enforcement of any gun law in the US....

So if someone smacked you in the nuts with a baseball bat...did they really smack you or did the bat?

Does it really fucking matter? You just got smacked in the nuts.

Until the libertarians pull their head out of their asses with the open border beliefs, they'll never be relevant

The libertarian stance is to end the welfare state and then the border becomes a non issue. Big government retards need to actually read up and understand their stance.

The libertarian stance is also that government (federal, state, & local) has zero place in abortion. That grates on most "conservatives" since they feel they have the right to ban it. Same thing goes for marriage. Most conservatives want marriage to be between one man & one woman. Libertarians say it's none of the government's business what consenting adults choose to do in regards to marriage.

The "bump stock ban" classified any gun with a bump stock as a "machine gun" making it subject to federal regulation. Federal regulations which some would deam to be a 2nd amendment violation.

The NYS safe act did the same thing by classifying any gun with certain features as an "assault weapon" making it subject to the rules of the safe act.

So if the bump stock ban isn't an infringement on the second amendment how can the safe act be?

What was the Founding fathers' views on abortion?

actually, the bump stock was reclassified as a machine gun on its own, which since it had literally no impact on the function of a firearm, was completely ludicrous.

The safe act put limits on and regulated anything deemed an "assault weapon" (among other things), and since that infringed on and regulated actual firearms and the processes around possessing them, its clearly a second amendment infringement, as well as several others, including the 4th amendment and 5th amendment.

If you want to have a discussion about how the treatment of actual machine guns and the restrictions on them are violations on the second amendment, then i'm all for it, because thats factual. But just because the government defines something a certain way, doesn't mean it actually is that thing.

if something is unconstitutional, does it deserve less or more outrage depending on what Amendments to the BOR it violates? IE, the bump stock ban is unconstitutional, so does it matter what portion of the constitution it violates? or are we only really concerned and outraged about the 2nd amendment and no others?


remember, this is all just food for thought. im not dismissing how wrong any of these laws are, but maybe trying to get people to reflect on what rights the laws violate and where outrage should be placed.

I agree that framing the bump stock thing in a 2nd amendment argument means you have to agree that a piece of plastic is legally defined as a machine gun and that is crazy.

but atf be crazy.

I guess that's the point of being mad about it. Government literally just defined something as something it wasn't and then it was illegal.

Everyone can talk about how awesome libertarians are on paper but let's see a candidate that's embodies all these stances. Gary Johnson sure as shit wasn't it.

This..... so much this. Find me a Charismatic, electable libertarian that actually has libertarian views and maybe some of us will get on the bandwagon. Heck how about simply some candidates for offices other than the presidency. Lets see some libertarian mayors and governors to prove proof of concept.

string has been serialized
wire coathanger and an aluminum can have both been used to make swift links

then there's those 3d printed swift links, but that's kind of less impactful IMO because you need a lot of tooling rather than just a pliers or the ability to tie a knot
