  •  arms are a subet of munitions (0+ / 0-)

    munitions are not a subset of arms.

    If we were arguing instead that the 2nd amendment read

    A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear munitions shall not be infringed
    Then yes, you'd have a point with the bazookas/tanks/nukes hyperbole. Tanks/cannon/missiles/etc are munitions and ordnance not a subset of arms.

    Everything in your list that you quoted is covered, and all if it can be prucaced legally by a civilian.

    Fully automatic weapons, silencers, short barrel shotguns, and short barreled rifles fall under the NFA act.  You need a 200 dollar tax stamp, a six month (roughly) waiting period and another set of background checks, in addition to other additional laws to follow.
