I didn't say gun, I said crack. And you still haven't provided a solid foundation for where we can establish what exactly is reasonable. Who get's to say?

Just as I said, States can make reasonable regulations, but they can't make unreasonable prohibitions that violate due process. [see Harlan above on due process]

So, the qualifier is, what is too dangerous and who get's to decide?

Back to basics tex?
In our system: -- Legislators are pledged to make reasonable laws; -- Executives are pledged to enforce only reasonable laws; -- and Justices pledged to decide questions about unreasonable laws that arise before the courts, -- in favor of liberty for all.
You can't even agree on those basics?

So you admit the qualifier is "reasonable"? Who get's to decide what is reasonable?

Weird reply; -- 'Deciding' is answered just above. --- Read much?

Prove that prohibiting me from buying crack is unreasonable.

Prohibiting you from buying a gun is unreasonable, unless it obvious you are of unsound mind & high on crack at the time. -- Once sober we can discuss the issue as reasonable adults. Keep trolling, and no doubt you will make a complete fool of yourself.

I didn't say gun, I said crack.

Read the posted article; -- It's an excellent essay on why prohibitions on guns & cocaine are unreasonable.

And you still haven't provided a solid foundation for where we can establish what exactly is reasonable.
Who get's to say?

In our system this is "who gets to say", tex:

-- Legislators are pledged to make reasonable laws; -- Executives are pledged to enforce only reasonable laws; -- and Justices pledged to decide questions about unreasonable laws that arise before the courts, -- in favor of liberty for all.

We are all responsible for being "reasonable" about each others Constitutional liberties.
Now and then of course, we find people like you who believe in prohibitions on liberty. -- Which is a weird choice, one you can't even understand.

tpaine's standard is (to paraphrase Justice Potter Stewart), "I know unreasonable when I see it".

Trying to pin him down is like trying to nail Jello to the wall. He refuses to answer a direct question because he has no answer.
