Do you think there are ANY weapons which should be restricted in terms of private ownership?

Under the current laws, yes. Because if you allow an exception for one amendment without going through the proper procedure to change the constitution, you have just created a loophole that can be used to circumvent any amendment.

I see the need for SOME limits.

I see the need for some limits too. I just don't see the need to circumvent the constitution to implement those limits. If it is dangerous enough, surely there will be enough support in the various government bodies to follow the proper procedures that are in place for amending the constitution.

beheaderaswp wants a firearm to get from Point A to Point B, in the event that Point A becomes dangerous. It seems reasonable to assume that, once at Point B, they would want to keep their firearm in case they need to move on to Point C for the same reason they left Point A.

If God did indeed make the universe, then the universe itself is the ultimate testament to truth (whatever that is) - not a book - for the universe alone was authored by the hand of God. To deny it is to call God a liar.

Isn't that basically what some groups do? Specifically, I'm thinking about the groups that claim their god put fossils in the earth to trick us, but I'm sure there are others.

"a la carte" in terms of cable subscriptions means paying for only the 3 channels you actually watch, instead of being required to subscribe to a package of 200 channels to get those three channels. I don't know that that is really comparable to a per-minute rate on a cellphone.

If you misconfigure your wireless access point and leave it open, does that mean that it should be legal for anybody to connect to your network and download all the files from your NAS without penalty? Including *those* pictures of you and ____ doing _____ to _____, and your tax returns from the past 5 years?

Yes. You wouldn't blame the recipients if, instead of a misconfigured wireless access point, it was your crazy ex who still had a key who was giving out free copies of those documents, would you?

In particular, if the door is unlocked, that doesn't mean you can walk into the building and take photocopies of everything you find there, then publish the documents.

This isn't an unlocked, unsupervised door to a building, this is your crazy ex who still has a valid key holding a garage sale while you are out of town. The people perusing the contents of your home looking for items to take/buy didn't know the crazy ex did not have the right to let them in.
