The problem really is with our elected officials. They what they want. Look at corporate bailout, or the banking bailout. I know that the NRA lobbied Regan to NOT veto the FOPA, because they felt that the no new machine guns amendment was less important than protecting the firearms owners from the BATF. My question is how come this hasnt been petitioned to be overturned due to constitutionality of the amendment as it infringes upon our right to keep and bear arms. The framers of the constitution didnt specifically draw out what types of firearms we can or can't keep and bear. Only that our right shall not be infringed upon.

Governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed. That whenever any form of government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or abolish it, and to institute new government.
