No, you open your eyes and see what happens in a country that IS armed!
You have a guy killing another guy for making fun of his shoes.
You have a guy who kills a cook because they put mustard on his hotdog.
You have teens shooting an old lady because she suggested they get jobs ........ The list goes on and on!
The days of us taking up arms against our government are long gone!
Psychotropic drugs and guns don't mix. We have too much of both in this country!
We don't need military weapons to protect ourselves in our homes. Nor do we need them to hunt.
Open YOUR eyes. If I'm crazy and want to kill you I'll do it with or without a gun. Why do you keep associating psychotropic drugs and guns? They don't hand you a prescription when you purchase a gun.
The guns are to blame for the loons now? Back in the 60's marijuana was to blame. They had guns back then too.
Yes, if a person feels the need, they do need military grade weapons to defend themselves. You sure as hell can't fight off a tyrannical government that is killing it's citizens with it's military and it's military grade weapons unless you're armed with the same.
The NRA sees us as a country of John Wayne's, but actually we are a country full of David Berkowitz'es!
Maybe in your world, but in the rest of the country, a.k.a. reality, the majority of gun owners are responsible and even you and the rest of the democrats can't argue with that black and white statistic.
