You have more chance of surviving a stabbing or bashing.
from what i remember the native Americans did not fare too well either.
A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.
With Americas chased up army there is little chance of an invading country not becoming a radio active waste land if it even thinks of invading. Despite popular belief America is under little threat of invasion. To make militia effective in the next war you should legalize nuclear weapons.
how many killing sprees has America had? is it still represented by single digits?
killing sprees "should't" realy matter, its the idividual crimes that "should" matter most.
why? is some nut job showing his distaste for society by shooting up a school less important then someone normal snapping? people who go off the deep end can do a lot more damage with a gun then if they don't have access to one.
Guns make killing easier almost any one can pull a trigger, hell there has been a preschool shooting in America.
There is little advantage of having easy access to guns. Ever heard the saying "if you don't have it, you cant use it". It only takes a second to loose control and kill some one with a gun.
Come on the bible not exactly brand new.
