17. Is registration a restriction on voting?
Outlawing firing a gun with in the city limits a restriction?
Registration and high fees on owning a full auto?
Ohio's restriction on possession of 30+ round mags?

I don't think rights and restrictions are quite as black and white as some make them out to be. Not that I am in any way in favor of the restrictions placed on personal freedoms that were put in place after 9/11, it does show that events do matter. The debate on 30 round mags is an example. It is pretty much in debate after Tucson. If the Hutaree Militia had been successful in its plan to kill hundreds of police, what would that argument look like now? I would hope we didn't need this debate, however incidents happen and change opinions.
