    "Are you advocating for a complete ban..."

    No.

    "FACT: No despot would attempt tyranny against an armed populace."

    So Germany circa 1930s, Italy, China, North Korea, America pre-Revolutionary War... none of those places had guns? First I ever heard of that.

    Tyranny has NEVER taken hold when people had guns? NEVER?

    Okay.

      you are not advocating for a complete ban, then you and I have no conflict.

      There is a difference between "having guns" and an "armed populace" .....

      Of course there were people in Germany, Italy, China, and North Korea that had guns, but not the same as the USA.

      And regarding: "America pre-Revolutionary War" ...

      (A) look what happened,

      (B) there is a difference between a remote colony and a tyranny or one's own government, and

      (C) look what happened.
