Security Priorities

I find it amazing that a US citizen can buy thousands of rounds of ammunition, assault rifles, handguns, camouflage clothing for the purpose of mounting an assault on a movie theatre without raising the suspicions of any law enforcement agency. In light of this I’m even more amazed that anyone would claim that stockpiling weaponry in this manner is a right worthy of protection by the US Constitution. 

At the same time, in the same country, travellers can’t take water bottles through airport security and teenagers are subject to criminal prosecution for downloading music from the Internet.
