Assault Rifles. The Second Amendment to the Constitution of the United States of America. Atomic Bombs.

It seems to me that anyone who subscribes to the Constitutionally based belief that individuals have the right to own assault rifles would also subscribe to the Constitutionally based belief that individuals have the right to own atomic bombs.

Follow my reasoning on that statement.

Using deductive reasoning in the meaning and application of the Second Amendment, an individual has the right to own an atomic bomb.

Deductive reasoning is a basic form of valid reasoning. Deductive reasoning, or deduction, starts out with a general statement, or hypothesis, and examines the possibilities to reach a specific, logical conclusion.

The scientific method uses deduction to test hypotheses and theories.

In deductive reasoning, if something is true of a class of things in general, it is also true for all members of that class.

Oxford dictionaries definition of arms: Weapons and ammunition; armaments.

Oxford dictionaries definition of armaments: Military weapons and equipment: 'chemical weapons and other unconventional armaments'

Assault rifles would be included in the definition of arms. Atomic bombs would be included in the definition of arms.

In deductive reasoning, if something is true of a class of things in general, it is also true for all members of that class.

Accordingly then: Assault rifles are arms. Atomic bombs are arms. The Second Amendment states, "A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed."

If individuals have the right to own assault rifles under the Second Amendment, then indiviuals also have the right to own atomic bombs under the Second Amendment.

For deductive reasoning to be sound, the hypothesis must be correct. It is assumed that the premises, 1) the right for an individual to bear arms, 2) assault rifles are arms, and 3) atomic bombs are arms, are true. Therefore, the conclusion that individuals have the right to own atomic bombs is logical and true.

To those persons who support individual ownership of an assault rifle under the protected rights of the Second Amenment but do not support individual ownership of an atomic bomb under the protected rights of the Second Amenment, I respectfully request that you please explain your reason(s) for such.
