Tell me who is the 2nd amendment protecting us from?
All semiautomatic weapons pose a greater threat, however shotguns and pistols are limited because of recoil. Some pistols should only be in the hands of law enforcement, just ask a police officer next time you get a chance. Nothing about weapons is scary to me personally, because I understand them. I don't condone the right of Joe Shmoe with no idea what he's doing playing with them, or worse someone who does and wants to massacre innocent children. You are inclined to believe what you want, but if its the Government you are afraid of you should just leave. If the US decided to come down on its citizens, anyone willing to resist would be annihilated, so you can pretend your suped up .22 is going to save your life, but its not.
