In the United States after the civil war the first thing that the southern states did was make sure that blacks were not allowed to arm themselves. They were not only at the mercy of crooked cops but of the klan and other racists people and therefore had no way to defend themselves. Fast fowrard to nazi germany. When hitler and the nazis came into power one of the first things that he did was take away the right for the jews to arm themselves and we all know how that one turned out. Criminals don't follow gun or any other types of laws that is why they are criminals. Why don't you google the case parker vs the district of columbia so you can learn what the gov't position is when it comes to protecting it's citizens. I don't ever want the gov't to have that much power over me where I have no legal right to defend myself or my family.

1) The right to keep and bear arms was so that the people can defend themselves against oppressors. Last I checked the world is not free of oppression.
2) It is illegal for the average citizen to OWN an automatic weapon, much less carry one, so there is nobody at the supermarket carrying automatic weapons.
I see this "automatic weapons" statement made by liberals a lot. It is one of the most factless and baseless statements made on the issue.
An intersting little statistic...
2009 deaths from DUI/DWI - 44,647 http://www.centurycouncil.org/learn-...g-research#888
In spite of my best efforts I can only find generalized numbers of 30,000 deaths per year from guns and that includes suicides. If anybody finds hard numbers I would appreeciate it.
Assuming the 30k number is accurate, it appears we need to outlaw cars and alcohol before we outlaw guns.

The simple reality is that the idea that the government or the police will protect you is blissful ignorance. If someone breaks into you home there will be no government agents or police there to protect you. You are on your own. The police may eventually arrive but it will be to investigate how you died, not to protect you.

I have survived 45 years on this planet without the need of a GUN to protect me. I am certain, with good health, I can survive another 45 years. If someone breaks into my home, they better be armed; it will get my compliance, otherwise they will have bitten off more than they can chew.
