Also I think we need to make it harder for people to buy guns.
If anyone needs a firearm as AR-15 for home defense they gotta be a really crappy shooter though, and doesn't take the responsibility to be able to aim and fire their weapon accurately with any ounce of respect.

Seems more it's a weapon to have lying around on the off chance when a homeintruder do happen you can finally live out your Rambo Macho Fantasy and use "self-defense" as a excuse to spray your home full of bullets and maybe hit whoever entered your home. Red bandanna and baby oil included.

Someone that actually knows guns, knows how guns work, respect the destruction a firearm can and will do, should be able to defend their home which is most likely a closed and narrow space to begin with, use a handgun.

I know jack-all about guns, again because being someone with a mental illness that's had a history of suicidal ideation means I keep away from them for my own safety, but from what I understand this particular weapon that everyone's fighting over is the firearm equivalent of a cool toy.

The AR-15? As far as I'm aware, it's basically a semi-automatic variation of an M-16. It's a weapon designed to kill people. So it's no surprise it's frequently used in mass shootings.

It seemed somewhat reasonable as far as these sort of articles go right up until the last two - and at least it admits that they don't come to the table in good faith - but that's a whole thing I don't feel like talking about right now.

I genuinely wish second amendment defenders put as much time and effort into defending the fourth too. Maybe then we could get back to a place where getting on an airplane isn't a gigantic hassle where you show them everything but your privates (and they might even see those with some of the machines they have).
