Well, it'd be kinda unrealistic to say no.
What argument are you trying to make?
That people no longer have the right to arm themselves accordingly to defend themselves from threats and a tyrannical government?
That law abiding citizens should be forced to have inferior small arms compared to criminals and the government?
Does an individual citizen have less of a right to defense of self and country in 2017 than they did in 1787?

It's our right to own guns here, written in the constitution. A gun is a tool that you can use for good or evil. unfortunately an infinitely small minority of legal gun owners use their tools to kill other people.
That was written when single fire rifles were the norm mate not fully automatic 1000 round weapons.
And that wasn't my question. I don't want a 20 page thread about your rights because I'm very aware of them. I just want an answer to that question , please

Are you defending your country like you did in 1787 from a foreign power?
Or are you defending yourself from your own countrymen.
I will go with confused as it is really not that difficult to make a distinction.

Do you have a link for that statistic?
That doesn't seem right to me.
Chicago is a war zone every day but 273 in 275 days sounds fishy.
