    Does the US. Constitution Ban Home Ownership of Explosives?

    I didn't see that in any of the articles or amendments.

    Can Congress make up laws covering issues not enumerated in the Constitution?

    • Both the Fifth and Fourteenth Amendments guarantee that we will not be deprived of life, liberty, or property without due process of law. As Justice John Marshall Harlan II famously said, "This 'liberty' is not a series of isolated points pricked out in terms of the taking of property; the freedom of speech, press, and religion; the right to keep and bear arms; the freedom from unreasonable searches and seizures; and so on. It is a rational continuum which, broadly speaking, includes a freedom from all substantial arbitrary impositions and purposeless restraints."

    • As far as I know, at the time the Constitution was written, there was only one explosive -- gunpowder. God knows if the Constitution permits more modern explosives like fertilizer and heating oil.
