I don't know where you live, but in the united states, via the second amendment, it is considered a right. you had better hope this does NOT happen, because when it does, likely the rest of the rights you enjoy will follow close behind ONE MAJOR reason the founding fathers included the 2nd amendment and the RIGHT to keep and bear arms was to protect the citizens from tyranny, and IMHO, given the rest of the statements within the Declaration of independence and Constitution, it is the DUTY of able bodied citizens, per the site http://www.uscis.gov/sites/default/...ource Center Site/Publications/PDFs/M-654.pdf , which is a GOVERNMENT site, to throw off the government and the mantle of oppression that violates freedom, life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness that the Constitution guarantee's and REPLACE the government that abuses them. see the following quote from the declaration: Now, I am not saying that we should all rise as one today and throw off the current regime and establish a democratic government, just that we should all remember that we ALSO have DUTIES as citizens under the constitution! And you honestly think sharing your opinion in such a manner is objective and logical? For what it's worth, your opinion against is a little confusing, because you DO know that without those guns and people that are willing to stand up for the RIGHTS guaranteed under the Constitution, like the soldiers who serve in the military, then you would not have the freedom to post your opinion like above, nor the RIGHT to verbally express yourself? what have YOU done to guarantee that all people are given the ability to exercise the rights granted to them under the constitution?
