...any 2 amendments from the Bill of Rights in exchange for a full right to keep and bear arms, which ones would they be?

the body can't live with out the mind. I wouldn't want to even try that one.

Maybe the 3rd. and 8th. But if a soldier is quartered in my house, he better provide cool toys and lots of ammo for trips to the range...

Three and Seven.

well, I already can have at least #4, #9 and #10 infringed without their permission, so shouldn't I get #2 NOW? Juggernaut

That's a stupid question. We already HAVE a full right to keep and bear arms. The problem is that those with socialist leanings keep deliberately misinterpreting the law. We don't need to give up any freedoms to protect the 2nd amendment. We just need to be damned sure that we let our elected officials know that WE THE PEOPLE won't allow them to screw us! But if I really had to pick two, I'd pick 7 and 10, if restricted to picking from the first 10 amendments. If given my pick of ALL the amendments, I'd choose 18 and 21, which results in no change. If you restricted those from the selections, I'd choose the most recent two, on the basis that we got along fine without them for a LONG time and can probably get along without them again. CJ

Beat me to it. I'd also give up the 16th and the 19th (sorry girls).
Article XVI. The Congress shall have power to lay and collect taxes on incomes, from whatever source derived, without apportionment among the several States, and without regard to any census or enumeration.

Article [XIX]. The right of citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of sex. Congress shall have power to enforce this article by appropriate legislation.

Imbroglio is our resident discussion-starter. At least he can spell and knows what the shift key is for.

Just a quick observation: Those of you picking the 16th and 19th amendments are [b]not playing by the rules![/b] Imbroglio said "from the Bill of Rights"...which is and only ever will be the first Ten Amendments. Amendments 11-26 are not part of the Bill of Rights. And pertaining to the question, I would give up the 1st and 4th amendments...so then we could have all the weapons of a modern army, then win the recognization of these inherent rights back, permanently.
