I guess my biggest concern with our right to bare arms is:
If it was taken away - will the rest of our rights be meddled and tampered with to? Will the anti-USA'er's stand up and say, "Finally, it's time
to make our move and claim the land against debt owed to us?"
It's those things I worry about. Not - can I protect myself from my fellow countrymen. Not can I still go hunting. I have a bat, crossbow - those
things are not what I'm worried about losing.
I'm worried about outside influences that might be emboldened by a gun no longer being behind every blade of grass.
I don't know if that's a legitimate or groundless worry. We already caved on our right to privacy, right against unreasonable searches/seizures, and
caved on the right to not be detained without charges, representation, or cause. So perhaps the constitution is already trashed and lost to us, and
I'm simply in some state of cognitative dissonance.
As for Gang related violence - law enforcement as been letting that element of society work at killing THEMSELVES off - for decades.
