are not opinions. As I said, it has been explained as to why such weapons should be in the possession of the American people, the 2nd amendment has been explained as well. You and others just want accept it.
The Constitution is there to protect the people from the government, as well as from other people, that's right, people like you for instance, meaning - you are not to be able to use democratic mob rule to override certain rights that you, for whatever reason, either don't' like or approve of, as to then impose yourself on to those you disagree with.
And one of those rights, is the right to keep and bear arms.
