By the way, the intention of our second amendment was for the general populace to have weapons that were as effective as our military, to defend ourselves against any tyranny that may rise and turn the military against us.
That's why we freaked out about the assault weapons ban (and are happy it`s over). Technically, we are allowed to own tanks and fighter jets, but it`s kind of cost prohibitive lol.

To comment on the shotgun issue, they are far superior for home defense. One of the prime rules of responsible gun ownership is knowing what is BEYOND your target. 556 (AR-15 round) is deadly through my house and the next one as well. With the proper ammo, your shotgun won't go through two layers of sheet rock and insulation. Nothing, nothing is more intimidating or distinctive in the dark than the sound of someone cycling a round into a pump shotgun.
I think it is very interesting that people who think responsible gun owners are just paranoid are they themselves so paranoid of being shot by one of our guns; however we are the crazy ones for being armed!
And finally, for the same reason that you can`t ban abortions, you can`t ban guns. Legality doesn`t stop the acquisition, just the safety and regulation.
