Liberals argue that owning a lot of guns or semi automatic guns is excessive. If the government ever did try to impose a tyranny we would need to match the weapons that were coming against us, wouldn't we? Wouldn't we need something better than a six shooter?
I heard a liberal say that owning semi-automatic weapons is unnecessary and not what the second amendment intended, but couldn't you argue that the first amendment wasn't intended to protect violent for-profit video games and movies? Aren't they excessive free speech? Do we need to see pretend, for-profit violence on TV?
