What do you want to hear?
I suppose we shouldn't care. Let every stupid bastard out there have access to firearms. As long as I have one too I shouldn't have to worry. Right?
If someone breaks into my home in the middle of the night with an assault rifle and shoots me in my sleep I suppose at least I had the ability to defend myself from the lunatic had I woken up, gotten to my gun first, and then killed him. I guess if the nut went into my child's school and shot her, I could take solice in the fact that had I been there with my assault rifle I could have got him before he did the killing.
