what annoys me is that it is too easy to troll. you only have to go on to a website that disagrees with a topic and copy and paste. you can waste your time responding until they either change the topic or they just stop replying (if they can't find content to counter your reply).
Now, do you know what the 2nd amendment was for? Do you realize that it is actually irrelevant in today's society? Do you think a "well regulated militia" can stop the government from anything in the times we live in?
Sure it can. Plus, why would the principle of the 2nd amendment change just because the military now has more powerful weapons? What sense does that make?
How many times has someone with a gun stopped a disaster from occurring?
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.
