RE: "Eeeek, an AR-15 !!!"
I'm used to guns because my grandfather was a Marine, it's not uncommon for me to see them on civilians in public, and I own a Black Hawk supersonic-pellet rifle which I could easily kill someone with without a well placed shot. That being said, I favor more gun control for the following reasons. First of all the second amendment was written in a time when people used muskets and cannons, so it's terribly outdated. Second, specific guns like automatic and military weapons shouldn't be obtainable by civilians, if they want to use them they should be restricted to shooting ranges, and all other weapons as strong as my pellet rifle should require initial and remedial training, background checks, and a permit similar to what you need to drive a car, and liability insurance depending on the gun, where you are, and how you plain to use it. I often hear people say that this is unreasonable because it would make it easier for the Government were to oppress us in a "take over". My response, if the Government were against you, your guns aren't going to help you against drone and airstrikes.
