All these men, women, and yes, children laying in graves are just the price we have to pay to ensure anti-government zealots can feel like they have a fighting chance (which they don't) should Uncle Sam turn ugly?
Well, first of all people armed have better chance to defend themselves than unarmed. Also they can defend themselves aghast criminals who would have been armed regardless of what regulations you have in mind cause they do abide by the law.
Second of all attack at schools are due to unregulated health services and rules about mentally ill individuals. Why nobody campaign for better control and regulation of drugs, psychiatrist and their patients? Because nobody-care? Why pick on gun?
And how are we to know whom is sick and whom is not? Or whom will not become sick?
Well evidently most if not all of those who attached children had been diagnosed with one or the other of mental illnesses.
There is no way to control the people, so we must control their access to deadly weaponry.
Only people that need to be controlled are criminals, mentally ill and politicians the rest is just fine. I wonder why would you put your trust into hands of politicians who proved to be untrustworthy many time over than in your fellow men.
Total control of weapon including criminals would mean a total control of people because you cannot have one without the other. i would rather than some people where controlled than all cause it would means totalitarianism in which you are safe or not. It is up to you masters to decide that.
Well-regulated.... means regulations.
Well regulated in the language of 18th century - mean - well trained.
