calibrated means under control.
carefully assess, set, or adjust (in other words…set to rules)
Here is what one of the most crazy of his time revolutionaries said:
“The great object is that every man be armed.” and "Everyone who is able may have a gun."
there are several other quotes from our founding fathers and what they tell us is that NOT everyone should have a gun. That is ludicrous. They tell us variations of “everyone WHO IS ABLE” may have a gun. Someone must DECIDE who is ABLE.
I love how Conservatives attempt to cite the Constitution but refuse to acknowledge it was written by Progressives of their time who wanted a STRONG Central Government as evidenced by the Federalist Papers and by George Washington approving Alexander Hamiltons request for a Central Bank even though the Constitution did not specifically allow for one.
Because Hamilton had convinced Washington that the Federal Government had “Implied Powers”
your site did provide an excellently presented definition but the conclusion was not as strong and IMO the words of our Founding Fathers carry more weight than an academic and the reality is at the end of the day…that is the answer.
no right is given freely, every single one must be earned every day…if you kill someone you can lose your right to freedom, and even to life. if you yel FIRE in a theater you can lose your right to Free Speech. And if you cannot prove capable of safely possessing a gun you an lose that right.
that’s just the facts.
every right has qualifications.
