    At the point when the Second Amendment was composed, the gun was the best weapon.

    The Second Amendment says that everybody ought to have the best weapon.

    The best weapon presently is an atomic bomb with a distant detonator. The public authority should offer one to every resident right away.

    Dealing with mental illness, favor more law enforcement officers armed and ready.

    When the Second Amendment was written, the musket was the best weapon.

    The Second Amendment says that everyone should have the best weapon.

    The best weapon now is a nuclear bomb with a remote detonator.  The government should give one to each citizen immediately.

    The idea of taking away ammunition is something to think about.

    50,000 to 60,000 people died of opioids and opiates last year, another 20,000 died of other drug over-doses.

    Do you favor more or less party time drugs in this country?

    With all the drugged out freaks running around killing and robbing and looting, I favor every American citizen having the right to own and carry a gun for self defense. 

    The same people who encourage the crime and murder are the same people who want to take away law abiding citizens right to defense.

    The same people who want to defund and dismantle the police are the same people who want to take away your right to defend yourself.

    With all of the mass riots and v other assorted violent crime exploding, I absolutely favor the rights of people to own guns.

    If the left have their way, when your wife and kids are getting murdered  there will not even be a policeman to be called. 911 will tell you to sing kumbyua and hope the murderer has a change of heart.

    More guns is the direction America has been headed preceding the waves of mass shootings. So far, there's more than one mass shooting per day in America this yr. Suggesting more guns as a solution is like saying more cars means fewer traffic accidents. Get rid of the "people killer" high capacity magazine AR style weapons. These are the weapon of choice for mass shooters.

    I favor less guns. There are 120 firearms for every hundred American citizens. How can that possibly be justified? We also

     happen to have one of the largest and best-funded professional militaries in the world, if not THE largest and best funded. Even in a country like Switzerland where males within a certain age range are required to keep one rifle in their homes since they have always had a citizen

     army and not a professional military like we do, they don’t average that many total guns per person. And they’re not going around shooting each other with those rifles they have in their homes.

    There has been a recent uptick of mass shootings. But there hasn't been a change in gun policy. If anything, guns have been less available due to covid19.

    were there fewer guns between 2017-2020 when there were fewer mass shootings?

    or should we look at other factors involved too?
