You can’t pretend that, given the chance, there aren’t tons of state and national politicians who would directly and unilaterally outlaw guns. It’s like abortion. Plenty of people want it 100% illegal, the only thing stopping them is concerted, active opposition. In all fairness, I have yet to hear a good reason why a normal civilian needs a goddamn AR-15. it’s an assault rifle, it’s not for hunting, it’s not for show, it’s designed to put as many bullets into someone as possible, and most times, that lead is going into school-age children.
That has more to do with the American Militia movement, and how far their influence on conservative gun groups has gone. People have been preaching that the government is going to take our guns since Waco. They also have themselves convinced that any form of gun regulation is the equivalent of taking their guns. I had an uncle try to tell me registering your gun is unconstitutional.
