I've never quite understood that view. A God given right to own a gun??? Then you reap what you sow my friend. War, Hate, Murder, Death, Robbery, Crime and Sorrow are the rewards for such "rights".
It's a god given (naturally imbued by life, for atheists) right to defend ones self/life from harm. The gun, being an equalizer is the best way to do that.
Helious' statement is a simplification via what is essentially mathematical association, If A=B, B=C then A=C.

americans need guns because when their government tries to kill them they will need some form of defence, quite simple actually.
Originally posted by kevinunknownI got into this debate recently but it seemed a little bit of topic so I thought I would take a risk and write a thread myself asking the above question “why do Americans need guns?”

Environmentalists are going to kill us all anyway.
also, you are a perfect example of why the right to freedom of speech should be heavily regulated, just because you have a right doesn’t make it righteous.
