I don’t like guns at all but I do agree that we do need to be able to defend ourselves. I just think measures like background checks and frankly not allowing civilians or police to have certain weapons is sound policy.

I think that whether you use firearms, baseball bats or other tools for self defence, you should only use them in anger as a very last resort (ultima ratio), and be ridiculously forbearant, in part not to get tricked into lashing out in a way which hurts the cause, my mostly to maintain a element of surprise once one is backed into that particular corner.
