    There is not one legal federal law in the United States regarding citizen firearms possession. All are unconstitutional.

    Exactly. Next will be handguns, then bolt action rifles, shotguns, and single shot firearms. You will need a special reason, and license to own any type of hunting firearm. The natural, human right of self defense with a weapon by the law abiding will be gradually removed just like the UK.

    Yes it is THE narrative of the 21st century.

    If you have to be armed and trained in the use of a gun in order to be “safe” in your own home, you have neither safety nor security.

    Every study ever done had shown that gun ownership decreases personal safety. Those who own guns are 7 times more likely to have that gun used on them or a member of their family, than they are in it being used for self-defence.

    The safest countries, are the ones with the fewest guns. Americans refuse to believe any of this because they don’t want to. They want their guns and 35,000 people dying every year, is the blood price they’re willing to pay for them.

    But if one illegal immigrant kills one American, even in a car accident, that’s a bridge too far.

    Your country has lost its mind.

    No it wouldn’t. It would start a war between the Government and gun owners. American gun owners will not be disarmed easily or cheaply. The cost will be paid in blood and caskets on both sides.

    We’ve seen what this leads to in other countries. Germany, Iraq, the USSR, etc... at the worst and England, Australia, etc... more recently. Small steps leading to the disarmament of the people and removal of the most basic right of self defense from enemies, civilian AND Governmental.

    Then feel free to stay in your country and keep your opinions about ours to yourself.

    NZ had been on my very short list of countries I wanted to potentially visit someday. That’s no longer an interest of nine, and I’m sure they’re very happy about that.

    I'm sure it was a great comfort to the 23 that changing magazines slowed him so much. IF you know anything about the incident, you know that Suzanna Gratia Hupp is convinced that if she had been carrying her pistol (that was out in her car), she could have stopped the shooting. THAT would have been much more comforting to the victims.

    I agree that the idea that most cannot stay on target when changing magazines is ridiculous and betrays a fundamental lack of understanding of the issue.

    The right of THE PEOPLE to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed. Notice it does not say the right of the militia to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed. So, you're militia argument fails, unless you want to try to convince us they suddenly forgot how to spell militia.
