Sitting ducks, defenseless against an armed criminal with nothing to lose. I have a gun, and it's purely for the defense of my home and family. If someone breaks into my home, kicks in my front door, whatever, I can defend my home. That's a bad thing? No, i dont think so.
That's what the "right to bear arms" means to me - defense against criminals (who will have guns, no matter what laws you want to pass).
