    On the surface, it makes you irrational.
    Why do you hold those positions?

    You're saying everyone should be required to own a dueling pistol, and not allowed anything else, if I'm interpreting your "in the hands of the public" correctly.
    "Should" doesn't equal "required". I'm cool with handguns, shotguns, sniper rifles, bb guns, and Super Soakers, but I don't see what anyone who isn't actively fighting a war in another country needs to be firing a semi-automatic weapon for. Same with machine guns and grenades. You don't hunt deer with an AK-47, you don't scare off muggers with a weapon too large to conceal, and generally a clipfrom a pistol should be enough to deal with an assailant; that is, unless you're a really terrible shot. My greatest terrorism-related fear involves someone purchasing a semi-automatic or full automatic weapon, carrying it into a major city in an instrument case or something, and opening fire in the middle of Times Square/a crowded theater/a sporting stadium.

    What the hell is going on in this country?

    Is it just me or is there an awful lot of gun play going on in this country?

    From what I see, the "gun crowd" does everything from a position of ignorance.

    It's the culture of guns.

    What arguments sound like ignorance?

    What that law abiding citizens with guns actually decrease crimes?

    I can repost my graphs showing how that is the case, do you want to see them?

    Knowing how to field clean an AR15, or what ammo works in a Bushmaster, does not qualify you as an expert on weapons legislation.
