But that was in 1776! At the time, people on both sides could fight only hand to hand and with simple rifles and simple hand guns. Now the US government has airplanes, helicopters, drones, missiles, tanks and more! No matter how powerful of a gun you have, no matter how many guns you own, and no matter how many people join your local militia, you will NEVER be able to overthrow any president or any governor or any possible future invasion. It's that simple. It's called REALITY! Wake up! Stop playing cowboys and Indians! It's not 1776 any more. It's 2019! It's time to grow up and accept the reality. Of course I believe in the right to have guns for self defense and hunting. But to allow anyone to buy very powerful guns that can kill 20-200 people in seconds, that's insane in the context of modern reality when we can not overthrow the government, nor stop an invasion with personal weapons, unless you want to allow individuals to buy nuclear weapons!
And I do realize that Hitler and other dictators removed gun rights & seized people's guns before they took total control and killed people. I'm not ignorant of history. But that doesn't erase the reality that you can not in modern times stop the local police department and can not stop the state and federal militaries if they come against you. They are too powerful with modern weapons.
Plus, today we live in a much more wicked world where democrats are mass shooting people in malls, schools, churches, concerts and other public places in large numbers extremely often!
I also realize that people can use knives and over weapons. I know all of the talking points on both sides. No one is trying to seize all guns from the US population. Both main sides in congress and ALL Republican and Democrat presidents have rightfully agreed that it's common sense to restrict ONLY SOME people and ONLY SOME guns and supplies.
Trump is right to restrict some guns and gun parts/supplies. And he should restrict even more. But of course NOT all.
I realize this is very unpopular opinion to conservatives because they have been brainwashed to worship guns. But I am not here to make friends. I am here to help people to use common sense and examine what and why they believe things and come to greater, more accurate truth in all things, especially in Jesus Christ.
