If you believe the government making any gun illegal will result in you and your children being safer, maybe you should consider the results of ongoing government efforts to manage similar programs.
For instance, the war on drugs, the war on poverty, their own control of assault weapons under Fast and Furious, managing the people's money, managing Medicare, managing Social Security, and providing quality education. The list could go on page after page.
Many of the politicians screaming for gun control are dependent on people carrying guns for their personal safety. They wouldn't consider going outside without them.
Do you honestly believe the same politicians wanting to take your guns would endanger their personal safety by getting rid of the guns and people protecting them if they passed legislation making gun ownership illegal for the citizens?
The Second Amendment exists because of mistrust of government by the very people who authored the Constitution. It gives citizens the ability to defend themselves from the tyranny of a narcissistic or out-of-control government, as has been the case many times throughout history.
The Second Amendment is not about deer hunting or, for that matter, shootings in schools.
What better way to take control of a country than to bankrupt the people, thus making them dependent on the government while at the same time disarming them.
That leaves you and me broke, hungry and defenseless.
