Not sure I understand. Are you saying that state gun control laws are okay?

Any and all state gun control laws were ok until the Second Amendment was incorporated in the McDonald case...


That's is all great as a matter of constitutional law. But I'm not talking about "okay" as in legal. I'm talking about okay in principle. We're talking about "God-given rights" not the courts' interpretation of laws.

The post to which I was replying mentioned "the coercive power of government" in reference to "tyranny." Does it make any practical or theoretical difference whether the tyrannical or coercive government in question is a nation, state or municipality?
