    What’s protected by the 2A? (Multiple answers can be chosen)

    In light of the recent discussions about suppressors, I thought it would be interesting to get a read on what people think about the scope of the 2A. What items do you believe are protected by the 2A? Meaning, what items do an individual (who has not lost their rights by court order) have a legal right to own?

    I don't see my five-kilo, thermonuclear hand grenades on that list!

    I don't see any common resolution to that poll.

    You forgot to add all of the above.

    Arms. Weapons used in defense.

    What is not protected is using arms unjustly or without legal justification. All of those acts are not protected, regardless of the weapon used to break the law.

    Actually I DO own ALL of those! The American taxpayer, of which I am one, owns even the most destructive items on that list. Along with quite a few you didn't mention, like ballistic missile submarines, aircraft carriers, B2 bombers, on and on the list goes.

    It is too bad those who don't want me to own any of them, insists I pay for all of them...and then some!

    I see your point, though actually you own about one three-hundred-millionth of each of those items.

    It didn't seem like that little when they took the taxes out of my pay!

    And more importantly, you don't get to go to a range and play with all of them! I've gotten to play with: Weaponized aircraft, high explosives and nuclear. I've been trained on chemical/poison and biological, also on some really nasty variants that aren't on the list. Good times!

    What amendment is that? More importantly, who has the right to not wear clothing?

    I'll probably be on some list now (if I'm not already). I was just browsing the Amazon Prime Video library and there's lots of stuff on the militarization of the police, the movement to disarm us, and movement toward suppression of free speech. And, of course, conspiracy theories.
