Again with the rogue government fantasy?. I ask again.. exactly who do you think you'll be fighting if your `gummerment` decides to turn on it`s own people? zombies? robots? as @taylor stone already pointed out the US military is made up of US citizens, and I think it`s highly unlikely that even the most gung-ho marine would willingly turn a rifle on his own friends and neighbors. Unfortunately, @taylor stone then went on a rant about history`s oppressive governments. as much as you`d like to disagree, the US is not a facist state run by it`s military (Nazi Germany), It`s not a single-party socialist state(Communist Russia,Nth Korea) It is a modern western democracy, with checks and balances. It`s not perfect, but there`s an ocean of `what-if`s to be crossed before Times square becomes Tienanmen square. It`s a fantasy that tries to justify owning military-style weapons, and it`s not at all relevant to the issue at hand; The prevention of mass shootings.

He lost me when he said that "right to bear arms" makes even a background check unconstitutional. Bull. F'ing. S**t.
Jesus, did not one single gun advocate ever take a history class or read the constitution or look at the context of the people and time when it was written? It`s a shame we can`t put the original Constitutional Congress in the same room with this guy and watch how fast they clarify what they meant ...
