Guns are the only thing that make me equal to armed thugs, either armed civilian thugs or armed government thugs.
I can line up ten people: (1) farmer from Alabama, (2) drug thug from Philly, (3) mid-30’s woman in inner city Milwaukee, (4) ranch hand in Colorado, (5) store keeper in west Tucson, (6) college professor from Cape Cod, (7) Amish mafia character, (8) Vegas hotel manager, (9) Gulf shrimp boat owner, and (10) delivery guy from Boston.
Each will have a totally different view on guns. Each will disagree on firepower, and the need for small or large ammo magazines. Each will cite personal reasons to have or not to have a gun.
Presently, each is respected and allowed to function ‘as is’. If anything changes here, then their personal needs will be infringed upon, and one of the ten may not be around next year.
