    Let's grant that the bast way to stop a mass killing is to have a good guy with a gun on the scene. Are there ways we could avoid bad guys from considering getting guns or, once they have a gun, from even considering to become mass killers?

    Do you understand why I keep concluding you don't want to have a discussion in good faith?

    Donít ask ridiculous questions. There is really no way to 100% determine someoneís intentions.

    Why do you think I was asking to 100% eliminate all "bad guys with guns"? I asked if there was a better way than the mere knowledge that a good guy with a gun might be waiting for them. Can you not think of any other way to dissuade them from mass killing? Is that something we should investigate?

    Atheism is the cult of death, the death of hope. The universe is doomed, you are doomed, the only thing that remains is to await your execution...

    Right, and no one is trying to take that right away from you. No nuclear weapons for you though.

    I don't see the second amendment as prohibiting gun restrictions. The only thing that can be argued is how restrictive such a gun restrictions should be.

    Exactly. they were speaking in terms of the common arms of the time which were basically single shot muskets. It said arms, but I'm sure they didn't mean nuclear weapons. Common sense.

    AR15s are common arms. And remember the musket was the most advanced personal firearm of the time.
