Why don't you 'splain how direction of travel factors into making a particular caliber "high velocity".

I never said direction of travel factors into "high velocity" I only meant that it factors into velocity.

That said, I'm done with you because this is entirely off topic.

According to who?  Seriously, what right does anyone - especially the government - have to tell a person what they need regarding self-defense?  2A isn't a suggestion, it's as immutable as the sunrise.  The fact that some people don't value that RIGHT does not remove it for everyone else.

Speaking as a pacifist and an outsider, I would have thought that limiting magazine size would have been a suitable middle ground - no ones right to own firearms have been infringed, only that now the magazines available are ten rounds only.

I never said ignorance factors into "gross stupidity" I only meant that it factors into stupidity.

Any limitation is an infringement.  Infringement does not require an outright ban.  Limiting magazine capacity is an infringement.

Let's use 20 rounds to kill a rabbit or a cayote.

When that is specified as the purpose of the 2nd Amendment to the Constitution, sure.

No freedom to bear arms is infringed, anyone can have whatever arms they desire. This way, you can only fire ten shots before having to change magazine, but you can fire those ten shots from whatever weapon you desire to possess.

Post it here, including all amendments, and I'll let you know what I think of it.  I can't assess what I haven't seen...specifically, any "common sense" on the part of woukd be gun grabbers; but I'm willing to keep an open mind.

I'm fairly certain that the Constitution does not provide for common citizens to utilize, say, a mini-gun or other assault weaponry.

The state militia is allowed.

Not being snarky, but you really do need to research what "infringement" means.

So...anything that can be used as a weapon to assault someone should not be allowed to be owned by "common citizens"-?

And the term "the state militia" does not appear in the 2nd A.  That's an interpretation invented by the gun grabbers.

Your right to bear arms, that is the freedom to own and fire when you deem fit, guns. To infringe such would require to to be told “you can’t have those types of guns”. Saying “no magazine sizes over X” isn’t an infringement of baring arms. It’s an infringement of the useage of such arms. But the second amendment is also very clear on when the useage of those arms was appropriate - the keeping in its place the government.

A States militia is under the governor's control.

One can't just say "I'm a militia member"... it has to be approved by the governor of the State per the Constitution.

Negative.  If I am restricted on components of a firearm, that's an infringement of the bearing of said firearm...whether I use it or not.

Your right to use, therefore in your estimation “bear”, firearms is already restricted. For example, it against the law to murder someone with that firearm. Do you obvject to that restriction as well?

Today, as defined by the Militia Act of 1903, the term "militia" is primarily used to describe two groups within the United States:

  • Organized militia – consisting of State militia forces; notably, the National Guardand Naval Militia.[8] (Note: the National Guard is not to be confused with the National Guard of the United States.)
  • Unorganized militia – composing the Reserve Militia: every able-bodied man of at least 17 and under 45 years of age, not a member of the National Guard or Naval Militia.[9]

Unorganized militia fails on the "common sense" requirement for a State militia.

Duh...

No.  I clearly delineated between bearing an arm and using a firearm.  You insist on feigning an inability to understand plain English.

Of course, such tactics are the primary strategy of anti-2A gun grabbers.
