I'd like the panel to discuss ...

The Second Amendment.

If the preamble of the Bill of Rights Declares and Restricts Federal Government from (among other things) infringing on the rights of individuals to keep and bear arms, where does the the Government get the authority from to say which weapons people may or may not posses, and at the same time use the very same weapons to enforce those laws with? (Machine-guns, Short barreled weapons, explosives, etc)

        Our Bill of rights gives us the right to own and bear arms it don't say what weapons we can or can not own. Also it does not say you much take a test and/or get a permit to bear our guns on our person. When did the gov. get the power to override the BILL OF RIGHT???
