    They didn't intend Americans to own every kind of gun imaginable, that is for sure.

    Because they knew NaziCons with short dicks were fearful and paranoid and would need an arsenal to feel safe...?

    Wow, I forgot that one in my poll question. And, fearful and paranoid? You mean, it's like this nation's history never happened and, the history of untold numbers of other nations never happened? Are you really this clueless?

    You left out one option - so that Americans could feel strong and powerful knowing they could shoot a person dead and then claim 'Stand Your Ground'.

    Do you honestly believe, that over 200 years ago, the founding fathers intended for you to own every single gun you ever wanted?

    That wasn't an option because it never happened. I wasn't capable of reading your mind, and figuring out the type of crap you make up.
