We already have massive restrictions on what normal citizens can purchase. If you actually believe "well regulated militia" was meant to pertain to anyone, the second amendment is already meaningless. The government already came for your arms.
If you support the status quo, you already support gun control.
Err ok. I never said I didn't support gun control and that I want people to be able to buy military grade weaponry. I'm just saying the right to bear arms exists and there are too many guns in America to realistically accomplish anything drastic at this stage. People talk about gun control but there's a root cause and effect going on here, the desire to own and use guns. That's a cultural issue that needs to be addressed before any gun control laws are going to have a meaningful impact.
