I am I man of peace. But I believe we must have the right to arm ourselves. I’m against guns personally because of marital training. Look at the Manchurian government. There comes a point where we need to question our government. Progress is not intelligently planned and there are classes of people that truly believe their government is against them and we need to respect their right to defend that way of life. That is America freedom to live and let live. We all choose to live our life a certain way. No traditionally you don’t need that much firepower you all are right it automatic guns are killing machines. But when the cops drive around in armored light infantry “tanks” I think we should have the right to arm ourselves equally.
