Mr. Poopy is in favor of gun control.
he would prefer that you have some control over where the thing is aimed, assuming that it is not aimed at me.
Since you don’t need a machine gun to hunt a deer, we are left with the 2nd amendment thing.
I’m pretty sure the folks putting together the US, with their single shot muskets, were not thinking that we would be spraying 30 bullets with a single squeeze of a trigger when they drafted the constitution.
The forming a militia thing had a different context too as a bunch of farmers had just fought a war against the british army to form a country.
So unless you think we need to protect ourselves from OUR OWN GOVERNMENT, that argument goes out the window.
If you DO think that’s a possibility, than you would be horribly outgunned anyhow, as the armed services have way more high tech weaponry stuff at their disposal than you can even imagine.
And who is the government, anyhow?
It’s made up of citizens, both elected officials, and low paid employees. In other words, us.
I love how bubbas are always anti social spending, yet 62 percent of the budget goes to defense.
And funny how we are always “defending” ourselves in OTHER countries.
And they are SO pro military, yet they are planning on shooting OUR OWN SOLDIERS with their Walmart purchased guns?
So it boils down to ignorant people being riled up by those who are making money off these guns.
Like they say, follow the money.
