    It indicates that the Bill of Rights is indeed negotiable. Every 'right' has limitations. That's what the Federal courts are for. It is literally their mission statement.

    No it doesn't.
    It indicates that you can't make a point without resorting to an absurd extreme.

    Because it drives home the point. You cannot own a machine gun. Better? The point is that I just infringed on your right to bear arms.

    I believe that if the Left succeeds in their goal to gain total control of US all, they will want to give us or deny us any and every right.

    Who is 'the left'? Anyone that disagrees with you? I have no interest in total control. No one does. Except maybe for your Orange God. Stop whining, you aren't being denied ANYTHING. Why do you love to play victim so much.

    but the Bill of Rights guarantees individual regulated ownership

    An exception to prior restraint is national security (which has never been applied).

    Dumbfuck clown.
    Unlike other sections of the Constitution, SCOTUS rulings on 2nd Amendment issues have been consistent. Obviously you don't know that because you never graduated college.

    That is why the Constitution prohibits government from limiting those rights (from the right or left). Both sides favor restrictions on those rights--just different restrictions.

    I don't think it is their "mission statement" since there is nothing in the Constitution giving the courts the power to interpret it. The Courts gave themselves that power in Marbury v. Madison.

    States were free to make any restrictions on the 2nd Amendment until 2010 when the Supreme Court made it applicable to the states.
