Out of curiosity then, where then do bows stand?
Then it would only be appropriate if I reciprocated in kind and worked to deny your rights as well, wouldn't it?

I shouldn't. And I'm not. That's not what we're talking about though, you implied that the gun was your only option. You equated taking away guns to taking away your right to self defense.
You didn't answer my question. There are already methods that you cannot use to (legally) defend yourself. Why is the gun so special?
It don't really to me how you choose to do so. You could use a ballista and trebuchet for all I care. But the simple fact is that saying "gun rights = self defense rights" is not correct. There's an argument to be made that it would unfairly be limiting your ability to defend yourself, but as long as you are allowed some method of self-defense, you are allowed to defend yourself.
I am constantly astounded that other feel that they have a right to determine what rights I am allowed to exercise.
