Explosives are just as much as a "arm" as are semi-automatic weapons and therefore theoretically under the same constitutional protection. The relevance to the gun-control debate is that our society doesn't seem to have a legal / constitutional / rights problem with (comparatively) strictly regulating and restricting explosives; yet regulating other "arms," even minimally, is argued by reasonable people as being the slippery slope to totalitarianism ...


This is where it gets sticky and dare I say, embarrassing, for the nra etc.. Fight to the death for insane 100 round mags but anyone who talks about bombs in the same vein, is the odd person out.
