Come get em then. We're waiting. Oh, you might want to bring your... Hahahahahah Never mind.
How many times have we debated this issue, yet it comes up after every mass shooting. It's tiring. It's getting to the point where we may just need to exercise our rights rather than talk about them since talking has yielded zero results. There's nothing irresponsible about saying come and get them. It's what james madison said multiple times.
We have the right to keep and bear arms
“Well regulated” meant that State militias were to be well trained (i.e., they were to gather together and practice, drill, etc., on a regular basis) and that training was to be supervised by the States (i.e., the States were to appoint officers who were to oversee that training). (This was the clock-like aspect of "well regulated".)
If someone entered a crowded room with an AR-15 as compared to a hand gun, which gun do you think would claim more lives? There's no comparison.
If a law was passed where gun owners would have to hand over their guns, would someone really shoot an officer who was just following orders to do so? Taking a life just for the purpose to keep a weapon sure doesn't sound like a person who respects human life.
It takes a world class idiot to think that a murderer cares one damn bit about a gun law.
