"The nutcase militia men practicing to fight against U.S. troops—a statistically insignificant fraction of a relatively small percentage of the total firearms market"
I don't agree with that. But "statistically insignificant" is like beauty - it's in the eye of the beholder.
You know what the "increasingly “militarized"" aspect of gun sales proves? It proves that owning guns as part of your god-given fundamental human right to self-defense is bullshit. I already saw the leap from "right to life" to "owning a handgun" as bullshit, but now you kind-of make the argument for me. You might have had a point with your insistense on carrying a 9 everywhere you go, but how does one of those tricked-our AR-15's fit into the picture. It doesn't that's the answer.
In a way you've backed youself into the position that I've often allowed, which is your WANTING the gun is enough. You don't need the Constitution or the Natural Human Rights or the Bible to justify anything. You want it and that's enough. It is a free country after all. Of course you must submit to certain restrictions approved by the government. Sorry.
