Someone asked me, "Where does the right to bear arms end?"
I responded, "It doesn't"
You should be able to put any Joe Public, strapped with his carry piece and spare mags, in a room with all 5 living US Presidents and their immediate families, plus all the Veeps, PLUS Michael Moore and Janeane Garafolo, inside a locked room with NO Secret Service detail. The pistol shouldn't even come up in conversation. Presumably, none in that group would make themselves a physical threat to anyone else in the room maybe requiring a pistol being brought into play, and none would say, 'hey Joe, how bout you let me hold the gun from now on'. As it should be. As it probably is for north of 99% of the law abiding tax paying public that can buy a gun.
What is magical about that gun? I'm a big guy and can probably snap Jimmy Carter with one hand at this point. And I really REALLY dislike the man. But, would I? Even if guaranteed I would face no legal ramifications for ushering Jimmy Carter into his own personal Camp David in the sky I wouldn't. And neither would the vast majority, north of 90% perhaps north of 99% of average folks that also dislike Carter. Add a gun to the equation changes nothing.
And there is so much that a gun does BEYOND that magical presidential room. And there is a reason it is an enumerated right and a place outside the political process thereby.
And it doesn't really matter WHAT the arm is, either. I am just the same with a 1911, an operating Sherman tank, at the turret of an 8" Naval gun or in control of a B53 warhead. Though if gifted these last 2 I might need help moving them around. And the nuke might be too much of a headache to keep in the basement or what have you, so I might sell that to the DoD.
