Yes, which is just as stupid. Allowing for people who live on farms (less than 2% of the population) and may need both a rifle and shotgun and actual hunters with the same needs, there is no need. The militia types are the ones that tend to kill family or themselves. If they think they are going up against a contemporary combat team from any country with anything up to and including an AK47 they are already dead. And if there are more than twenty of them they will be turned to hamburger by drones after everyone gets tired of trying to talk them out of dying.

I worked with the results of the old Gatling equipped gunships in Vietnam almost fifty years ago. They could turn ten acres into splinters and tilled soil. And that was fifty years ago, this is now. You don’t even need people.

They’re your friends or neighbors and may be good people in other ways but they have been so badly deluded and used for reasons they don’t understand that I think many are already hopeless. All they can do is commit suicide and hopefully not take anyone else with them. The world they’ve been sold no longer exists. And the people who sold it to them don’t give even a tiny shit for anything but political use.

People in this country all need to die or change. And if they don’t change they may take us all with them when thay die.
