An occasional mentally ill person who manages to get these weapons and who manages to kill a dozen or so people and wounding 60 others is terrible. But it wouldn't be as terrible as a Hitler-like regime that is murdering many, many, many more...(millions?)..who have been disarmed and have no hope in hell to fight back. You don't think it could happen again? One of the things that these murderous regimes demand is gun control....take the only possible means of defending ourselves, including weapons that could even hope to stand up to such a regime, away from the citizens.
Yes, I suppose it would make some people happier if they even took away BB guns...and how do you think that would work in defending ourselves against a murderous regime with high tech weapons? The British were well armed with the latest high tech weapons of their day and were well trained,
disciplined armies. Yet, our forefathers managed to overthrow them and form the United States of America. I suppose many British thought these colonists "crazies" shouldn't have access to weapons either.
Be very careful in what you believe....there are fronts for such a regime that pose as liberals who are very good at convincing people that they should have strict gun control. Many of these fronts, whether organizations or individuals, have names that sound liberal and/or say "liberal" things but they are trying to manipulate you into acting against your best interest as a freedom-loving individual. Don't let these people convince you that you need to give up any hope of self-defense against what could very well be a mass-murdering regime.
And it doesn't even have to be concentration camps and Zykon B or ovens....if they manage to starve us all to death or deprive us of health care....or what if....because of such policies...a terrible virus breaks out as a result of all the poverty and lack of health care...and millions of people of poverty spread the disease and die?
