And how much weapons and ammo do you need to defend yourself? What are you defending yourself from? An invasion?
The automatic weapons, the assault rifles, the thousands and thousands of ammo. That's overboard.
I'd be willing to bet that in most cases where a person is in danger a can of pepper spray or a tazer would be much more effective than a gun.
This isn't the old west where everyone needs a pistol on them at all times. That would just lead to more disasters. Imagine if 4 people were packing in a crowded movie theater and a smoke bomb went off and everyone started shooting...
People are already allowed to carry guns all over the place, and nothing like that has ever happened.
