I am waiting for anyone to give any evidence that a gun ban would reduce crime in America.
And defend against government tyranny is a legitimate reason.
1) I don't think anyone is arguing gun ban = reduction in crime rate. I do not believe that correlation is true at all.
What I'm seeing is the idea that if less people have access to HCAW it will be MUCH harder to have massacres like Sandy Hook, Aurora, etc etc.
Over 2/3 of the "massacres" occurring in the last 30 years have been with an automatic weapon.
Many of us just feel that it would be better if firing 60 rounds in 30 seconds weren't as easy of an option for someone intent on doing harm. HCAW serve no legitimate purpose, yet are the weapon of choice for mass shooters.
2) If you think for a second that an armed citizenry has a snowballs chance in hell of putting down a tyrannical government you are delusional. Those days are long long gone.
The only way a tyrannical government doesn't win that fight, is if members of the military decide to turn on their leaders. Otherwise it is not even a fight really.
