Straw man arguments

Our government lacks the political will and man power to accomplish such a task especially in the face of tens of millions of private gun owners who far outnumber the military and police forces of our nation.

Tell that to every country that's ever been disarmed by its government.

Losing our guns is a greater threat to us than our crashing economy. We can rebuild from a financial crisis, but if we lose our guns we're done.

That disparity grows even further when you factor in the notion that most of those police and military are firm believers in the 2nd Amendment which they swore to defend.

Both police and military personnel have been guilty of inhibiting their fellow citizens' rights, so this is utter nonsense.
We've seen they are more loyal to their job and government than they are their friends and family.

History is repeating itself.
