I'm just talking about banning the second amendment...I actually read people wanting cops to search homes and the military going out on the streets in search for semi automatics...which are legal to have so they must also need to knock on doors.
These are very scary thought processes to have. People are willing to irrationally give up everything when it solves nothing...people with bad intentions can still get guns illegally....the same way they are doing now.
On this forum we've had this argument many times. I'm yet to see anyone who has suggested getting rid of the second amendment.
You seem to be the one who is equating an assault weapons ban with overturning the second amendment. And you are specifically suggesting that without these weapons we would be susceptible to a dictatorship.
If you are really worried about a dictatorship call your congressman and tell him to support legislation that would change the Constitution to make unlimited private donations to "Super Political Action Committees (Super PACs)" illegal. That would help society. Purchasing an assault rifle to protect your home from the future Fuhrer is just putting more money into Super PACs
