Angilion-"Why is using a gun a right but using a car only a privilege? Use as many words as you like."

I only need 27: "A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed."



You haven't given a reason for the position, you`ve given a restatement of the position. It`s like quoting a verse from the bible as "proof" that the verse is true.

The position is that using a gun is a right in the USA because the USA constitution can be interpreted that way and that using a car isn`t a right because modern vehicles aren`t mentioned in it.

But they`re not mentioned because they didn`t exist.

Just like modern guns didn`t exist.

@MeGrendel: you are 100% Correct! A blind person has a RIGHT to own a car! Needs a licence to drive it ON A PUBLIC ROAD.


So, applying the same standard means that a person in the USA has a right to own a gun on private land but does not have a right to take that gun onto any public land, ever.

@Angilion: All this time? I had no idea?? Did you mention this before (and I just forgot?)??? I do seem to recall you mentioning vision impairment before... (eye troubles) but not to that extent? idk.


My natural eyesight was very poor from birth and deteriorated steadily until about my mid 30s. I once had an optician dust lenses before my eye test - it had been that long since he'd used the lenses that far along the set :) I have no natural clear vision at all now - I am so short sighted that the limit of my clear vision is too close to focus Aha, no! I`ve just tested that, out of curiosity. If I use only my right eye (it`s better than my left), I have about an inch of distance a few inches from my face in which I can just about make out normal sized printed text. Woo!

It`s not a big deal because it`s completely correctable with the right glasses. Apart from all the floaters.

Not every "Blind" person is living completely without sight, "in the dark", many are just so optically messed up that there is no way to improve their eyesight with glasses or surgery.

Many people that are "blind" do have some limited sight, but even if they don't, everyone still has the right to gun ownership in the USA.

In my stay at IAB I've gone:
From: Employed full time
To: disabled
(several steps in between!)

It sucks!

@MeGrendel: you are 100% Correct! A blind person has a RIGHT to own a car! Needs a licence to drive it ON A PUBLIC ROAD.
On a "closed course" though? WHO is going to try to arrest a blind driver?
@Turdy: all those videos of "blind drivers" on race courses? You want them arrested? No?

Ok then.
