Nowhere that I know.

However, the Supreme Court has consistently interpreted and ruled that the second amendment gives Federal, State and Municipal authorities the power to regulate firearms.

As such, governments at all levels have the authority to decide if the ownership of certain weapons and accessories is in the best interests of public safety.

As we all know, rights conferred by the constitution are not absolute and are subject to regulation and the best interests of the citizenry.

Deer hunting was merely a literary device and was in no way intended to be a literal situation but rather a stand-in for the larger point that public safety outweighs the desire to own weapons that have been involved in mass-murder.
