5. Gun Enthusiasts

have been increasingly vocal the last few months after each successive
rampage

Some equate liberalism with fascism and of course 'fear the government that
fears your guns'

So they are afraid of a backlash to reality from their gun sales

Australia fought guns and won, why can't we in the United States?

The 2nd amendment clearly was about raising a militia, minuteman style, from
citizens who owned muskets. The Framers undoubtedly knew of these problems,
and also knew, on the frontier and outside polite society, that force would hold
sway

They could never have envisioned modern firepower, or terrorism for that matter,
piracy was their milieu of lawlessness
