@Julie_M a Militia is a body of Armed citizens, that usually aren’t gathered by the state. Also maybe I missed it but you need to explain why we should put efforts into banning and confiscating every civilian owned firearm in the US.
@hope1001 That is a very misleading statistic. Defensive gun use doesn’t have to include homicide. There are actually on average between 500,000 and 2 million times per year, rarely in homicides.
