If you ask me, the devil in the details is the word "regulated." That seems to be interpreted by some people to mean "unregulated."

The constitution is thought of as the law of the land, only it isn't. Every state has a constituion. They're all a little different. A constitution is merely how the government is organized and even then, it's pretty sketchy, and it probably should be. Otherwise you would have a government you might describe as Byzantine. But in any event, my trust in the system is the same as it's always been, neither higher nor lower. I lived through Nixon, Carter, Reagan, and Bush. The republic will survive.

By the way, who gets to decide who an enemy is?
