Speaking as someone who has spent 26 years defending American rights, we need to get the Second Amendment back to what it was before the Draft was eliminated and the NRA stopped being a marksmanship and safe gun ownership group. The Second Amendment is about providing for the common defense, not defending yourself from your own government. Israel and Switzerland both have National Military Service requirements and reasonable, effective gun laws. Why not copy them?
If you really think you need a weapon for personal defense, then get a revolver or small automatic pistol that you keep in your immediate possession 24/7 or locked securely (no, in your car/truck outside or in your garage, does not count. Ditto for in your purse on a shopping cart)' Also practice frequently so you can actually hit what you aim for, preferably on the kind of quick reaction course police officers use.

Our country has been involved in war for 28 years and culture is to blame? Our culture IS war.
