You have no clue what the 2nd Amendment is about, do you? While it's handy to be armed against any goons that threaten your family, the fact is that the purpose of the amendment is to give a national government pause about using force against its own citizens. The Founders understood that an unarmed society is a society of subjects, not free individuals. Society at large should have possession of enough firepower to represent a strong partisan force against an oppressive central authority.
