Sure. What the hell. Give 'em all guns.

Those of who you wish to talk derogatory of, already all have guns.
Those packed like sardines in the disarmed cities, are the sitting ducks.

So what's the plan?

Do big gun drops over those disarmed cities?

Sit at the door in fear with your gun raised, and when it opens shoot?

This isn't old school war. The threat is real, but it isn't a marching army you can see.

Those against gun control say guns don't kill, people do. There are way too many sick and deranged people out there. So arming everyone for defense purposes will actually just aid that which you are at war against, since you have no idea who you are giving the guns to.

That did not happen until the Civil War ended and the federal government saw just how dangerous the 2nd amendment was to them... Not the people. People that hold that amendment dearly.

Thanks to Paul Revere we now know that we need more guns to attack the terrorists, where do we form up to repel the first wave.

Nice to see an admission that times have changed. And that what was true more than 200 years ago doesn't necessarily always apply or fit in today's world.

You accept the FCC and all that it implies and yet think knuckle draggers hauling around machine guns can kill for any or no reason whenever they feel like it.

You've got to be joking. No point going further with you. Do some serious reading.
