I have an old school friend who is married to someone who recently just made this very same argument over social media sites in anger(some days after the tragedy after he had time to think). Everyone who tried to explain his mistakles about certain weapons was "distorting" the truth for their own agenda. He does whole-heartedly believe that the musket is what was honored and the second amendment is antique and at best needs to be totally revampled. he also made the statement, which is very common, that there was absolutely no need for people in some nice, quaint areas to have any firearms. Some people just don't realize that someone can invade the home and severly injure or kill their family.
