  1. Sure, you wear body armor against someone with a gun. See who lasts longer. The saying "the best defense is a good offense" certainly holds true here.

  2. You didn't even refute this point, just pulled a red herring and discussed statistics. Guns ARE useful for self defense. To address your red herring anyway: yes, they are useful for crime, too, but the places with the strictest gun control laws also have the highest crime rates, so this doesn't seem to be a problem of access for criminals. Perhaps the adage "an armed society is a polite society" has some truth to it, as people are less likely to carjack someone knowing there's a good chance that person is also armed.

  3. You're right, a big hand gun wouldn't be enough to stop a tank. But you're making a case FOR bigger weapons, not AGAINST smaller ones here, even if you don't realize it.

  4. See point #2. You're making the same red herring and again ignoring that guns are useful for self defense. Assuming no guns, how would you propose this potential rapist situation play out? It sure doesn't look good for an unarmed petite woman.

  5. You're missing the point of this quote: it's meant to highlight that a gun ALONE does not fire a bullet, someone has to pull the trigger. Perhaps this is a better example to illustrate the point: cars don't kill people, people kill people. Should we ban cars, then?

As the declaration of Independence States:

When in the Course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

TL;DR for tards: if the government is against the people, then the people must revolt against the government.

I like the sentiment, but you probably would have been better off quoting the "we hold these truths to be self-evident"/"consent of the governed" lines. Illustrates the point a bit better.
