      The problem is you also support the right for others to kill me as well. There is no possible reason for anyone to posses a weapon that is designed to destroy human life. yet I understand why some do support that even if I don't agree. Beyond that anyone that does should be subjected to thorough and intrusive background checks at the very least. Those unwilling to submit to that should immediately be disqualified because wouldn't that instantly put them in question as to intention.

      I laugh when I see second amendment "supporters" proclaim they need these weapons to protect themselves from the government. I would like just once for someone to provide an incident where an AR-15 or AK-47 no matter the number of rounds held in the clip protected them from drones and tanks.

      There are no sacred cows.

        Period.

        The lethality of a firearm is the whole reason I carry one. Should I give a criminal flowers if attacked? It'd be like enemy soldiers shooting beer at Marines.

        Actually, that might kinda work if they drank enough...

        And let me clue you in on asymmetrical warface: it's called assassination. IEDS. Sabotage. I'm not advocating it, but saying that one guy with a gun can't make a difference is not realistic. Hell, one of my favorite politicians was assassinated back in the 30s; changed the course of American history.
