This is a test of the emergency polling system. In the event of a real emergeny, don't sit around taking polls.

The constitutional right to bear arms means that

Government cannot regulate or monitor what weapons you own. The stuff about a well regulated militia explains but does not limit.

The guys who didn't define well regulated militia might disagree among themselves what it implied, but the founding fathers would have found some weapon owners not to be well regulated under some circumstances.

You can only bear portable weapons. No tanks, air craft carriers, or hydrogen bombs. A small nuke might be OK if you carry it around.

Arms only referred to stuff in existance when the constitution was written. No semiautomatic weapons.

You can defend yourself with the claws of a dead grizzly bear, but not firearms.
