"Firearms stand next in importance to the constitution itself. They are the American people's liberty teeth and keystone under independence … from the hour the Pilgrims landed to the present day, events, occurences and tendencies prove that to ensure peace security and happiness, the rifle and pistol are equally indispensable … the very atmosphere of firearms anywhere restrains evil interference — they deserve a place of honor with all that's good."
First President of the United States
"The great object is that every man be armed." and "[color=amber]Everyone who is able may have a gun."

Not true, I own a .45 pistol.
No other firearms.
You have heard what they say about a feller who only owns one gun, right?
"Beware the man who only has one gun. He probably knows how to use it!"

Take away the cops, idiots that shoot themselves, suicides and self defense, what is the number now?
From 10.2 too what 3.1?
you are either mistaken or washed, your choice.
The government didn`t go to waco to take away their guns, they went there to investigate reports that underage girls in the cult were basically being used as sex slaves and being impregnated by the cult leaders.The government knew that the cult had a lot of weapons which is why they brought a lot of firepower with them when they went there.
so, anyhow it wasn`t a gun rights issue, it was an issue of a cult abusing under age girls who were basically being held prisoners in the compound.

You don't need an assault rifle to go hunting deer, you don't even need a 10 magazine clip to hunt one...but a privately listed company such as Mondanto can have their own private army...

The 2nd amendment is designed to ensure that the American people can defend themselves against a professional military.
It is not designed to ensure that the American people be able to go to the gun show, the target range or duck hunting.
I think there should be a military grade assault rifle in every home in the US, as there is in Switzerland.
Truth is, they did have automatic weapons back then called gatling guns which were far more deadly than any automatic weapon that can be purchased legally today!
The Gatling gun was designed by the American inventor Dr. Richard J. Gatling in 1861 and patented November 4, 1862
