Sure -- the entire reason we have a 2nd amendment is that sometimes people need to kill other people.And you have to agree the purpose of firearms is to cause damage to others unlike a steak knife
But, at this juncture, that's irrelevant.

For the record though I do think citizens of the USA have the right to own firearms. I also think every firearm should have a serial number, be registered and licensed. Not unlike a car is.
If you dont agree with it, tell me why.
I have little issue with guns beng treated like Ohio treats cars:I also think every firearm should have a serial number, be registered and licensed. Not unlike a car is.
-You dont need a license to buy a car
-You dont need a license to own a car
-You dont need a license to keep/posess/store/transport a car on private property
-You dont need a license to operate a car on private propoerty
-You dont need a license to trasnport your car in public property
-You dont need to register a car that you buy
-You dont need to register a car that you own
-You dont need to register a car keep/posess/store/transport it on private property
-You dont need to register a car to operate it on private propoerty
-You dont need to register a car to transport it on public property.
-The ONLY time you need a license is to operate a car on public property
-The ONLY time you need to register a car is to operate it on public property
To treat guns like cars, change the word "car" to "gun" in all of the above.

FN 23 of Heller:
Still not sure what this FN is trying to say, but I'm reasonably sure that it's important.With respect to Cruikshank’s continuing validity on incorporation, a question not presented by this case, we note that Cruikshank also said that the First Amendment did not apply against the States and did not engage in the sort of Fourteenth Amendment inquiry required by our later cases. Our later decisions in Presser v. Illinois, 116 U. S. 252, 265 (1886) and Miller v. Texas, 153 U. S. 535, 538 (1894), reaffirmed that the Second Amendment applies only to the Federal Government.
People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.
