Anyone that is ignorant of why the 2nd ammendment exists, deserves exactly what they get. Keep allowing your sensabilities to control your train of thought, it will take you places in life. That place? Right into a tyranical state.
The reason that tyranical state hasn't completely bust open yet in the US, is because there is accountability behind the trigger finger of most US citizens. Not to mention free speech is protected by the 2A.
If people would actually read Solzhenitsyn or stories about the holcaust they'd understand the importance of the 2A. But since we are so worried about going to walmart and getting our 10 dollar TV and our free government food, we are content. Or for that matter, complain about why the family on the other side of town that has a nice house and car, and scream "inequality"'...sigh. Same strain of ignorance.
"Let us repeat history"...said the sheep to the neighbor sheep. "It will work this time, we are smart, unlike the people 80 or 120 years ago...dumb people..." said the neighbor sheep...
