That is what some in the government hope for. Some will over reach their authority and wait to see if anyone questions them. I see it all the time in local as well as the federal government
    But you don't trust the checks and balances. You don't trust the people to vote correctly. You are wildly overreacting and going far beyond where the founding fathers went. If they did nt believe in government, thy would not have created one.

And before you argue semantics, the gun of a police officer is most often use offensively without ever firing a shot, in subduing criminals, but the point remains that it's not carried out of fear.

    Just like a police officer needs a gun, though many times more often than most others, it's important to have the capacity to protect yourself.

    Thats why those that understand the second amendment are "zero compromise" on the subject.

    There are millions of Americans who honestly believe the mantra "you can have my gun, bullets first", understand that and the deep implication of that fact before you push too hard for gun control.
    No fear and hyperbole.

    If you remove suicide and killing friends and family (accidentally or otherwise) citizens use guns even less, face even less gun need situations, and have no obligation to tackle any if the dangerous situations police do.

    People, individuals, make arguments. It is appropriate to address the individual argument and some exaggerated misreading of a "liberal" argument.

    So, in your mind it is a perfectly acceptable argument to say that I can not generalize liberals, but YOU can generalize by the use of "your side....Got it....

    And that is up to the individual to decide what their own particular need for a gun is....Not yours.

    No, I didn't. You should re-read without your assumptions guiding your eyes.
