29. I must say, your reply was very nicely parsed.
Edited on Wed Aug-25-10 08:53 AM by friendly_iconoclast
Yes, he supports some reasonable restrictions as a majority of American gun owners do.

The sharp-eyed reader will notice that you don't actually state the "reasonable restrictions" the President supports are
one and the same as the "reasonable restrictions....a majority of American gun owners do."

However, any restriction are not tolerated by some gun zealots,...

Which zealots? Examples of same would be appreciated. Even the Gun Owners of America (who hold the NRA to be a bunch of
accomodationist sellouts) support some restrictions. I doubt you'll find anyone aside from some fringe-y libertarians
expressing this viewpoint.

....reasonable and with-in the bounds of the 2nd are not allowed.

Again, some examples would be nice. I have to say that, from what I've seen (YMMV), objections to gun laws have always
hinged on them not being "reasonable and with-in the bounds of the 2nd".

Some gun laws are both Constitutional and unreasonable - 'approved' lists and magazine size restrictions being foremost...
