That is what I have been trying to get to, cause that is where, as an outsider, I see your pickle.Yes, I know that threats are different in modern times than past. That doesn't change the fact that if the aggressors have state of the art weaponry, those being put upon need as close to state of the art as possible to defend themselves. This scales up from person-to-person conflict to full-scale invasion from a state actor.
If the whole 2nd militia agenda is to stand, it makes zero sense for the "civilians" to carry pistols or even semis. What you need is to arm your civilians with full scale assault weapons. Pistols just means you shoot yourself and love ones by accident at some point.. Ban them. Its full auto or nothing. + grenades. + mines. ++++.
You already know the argument against assault weapons for civilians right?
I am just saying its hard to have it both ways, and clinging to the 2nd cause you like your glock collection is probably missing the point of the 2nd.
