The guns our founding fathers were speaking of were long barrel, rifled single-shot muskets. They were flintlocks. Such guns are no longer even
considered "fire arms" by the federal Government. You'll note they were saying it would be bad if every home had a British Guard installed in it
and the citizens disarmed. First of all, your Constitutional guarantee is intact. You can have all the arms you can bear. No one is taking away the
gun you have now. But restricting access to high round capacity magazines, banning automatic and semi-automatic (convertible to a full auto) is not
the same thing as taking away your guns. It is simply keeping military grade weaponry off of our streets. It is to protect children. It is to protect
women and the elderly or all those who have not been "trained since youth" on how to use a gun. Giving some balding fifty eight year old school
principle a gun and asking him to defend 200 kids by shooting another person is NOT I repeat NOT going to work. Did you know that at Gettysburg they
found that a good fifty percent of the weapons in dead men's hands had multiple balls and powder shot in them? This is because these trained soldiers
were AFRAID to shoot another man, even one who was shooting at them! All people, even when given a gun, are not natural born killers. Imagine if the
principle or teacher buckles under pressure, does not shoot the armed assailant and allows fifty kids to perish! Can you imagine the unbearable weight
of responsibility on the souls of those who could not kill? This is why we have soldiers, and national guard, and police, and trained security forces.
Some people can kill on command or if need be. Others are KILLERS, they are violent and heartless murderers...not because they own a gun. But because
they are sick in the head. Not even our armed forces wants people like that. Now you are terrified that the armed forces of the United States of
America, YOUR OWN COUNTRY, are going to faithfully and dogmatically follow some unnamed president or congressman, and knock on your door, take your
gun, and install himself in your home like the British tried to do? Come on. Don't be an idiot. This heightened paranoid delusion that someone is
going to take your guns is becoming a method for the madness of total loss of control. Certainly the mobsters, drug peddlers and gangsters are way
more prepared to kill you than ever before. And as we have just seen recently, even being a gun advocate being in possession of multiple automatic
weapons, like the Sandy Hill shooter's mother...does not protect you from being shot yourself by your own weapon. Paranoia and fear, once they take
over your common sense, will place you in a way more vulnerable position when the next shooting occurs. This argument you have for gun ownership is
idiotic and untenable. Do you have a tank with a flame thrower and sound weaponry? No? Well the Police and Feds do! And they use them all the time!
What do you think your AK 47 or Bushmaster will do when they DO come knocking on your door, wondering why you just bought five thousand rounds of
armor piercing ammo? That's what happened to David Koresh. It's not 1776 anymore! Wake the # up!
