Guns are literally the only guarantee of liberty that the common people have against a tyrannical government. If they get too far out of line, it's the duty of the people to rise up and retake their God given liberties, by force if necessary.

Guns are essential to ensuring that government treads very carefully. If the government tried to collect guns, It would be disastrous for them.

They actually prevent the government from getting too far out of line. (though I'm afraid they're trying to cross that line) It's like Mutually Assured Destruction, in that the outcome is so horrific that the possibility is usually enough to stop things before they start.

That's the entire problem, the government isn't afraid of us anymore.

That's because feminism gave us at least two generations of pussified "men" (getting worse with each successive generation) who lack the balls to stand up for themselves.

Yes, that is the reason the founders put the 2nd amendment in. They knew what is was like to live under an oppressive government.

But shootings will turn into a farcical spaghetti western shootout if we don't fix the constitution!
