Who really cares what a bunch of 300 year old dead slave owners thought about guns. In any stand up fight the US military will decimate any force of americans no matter how many guns they have. The consequence of preparing the populace for this impossible outcome at the behest of the arms manufacturers who pay the NRA is that children die in schools, children die in their homes, children die in the streets, black citizens are routinely assumed to be armed and shot at and next to nobody who owns a gun has ever stopped a crime. So the only upshot I can see is America will be stocked for the zombie apocalypse. I don't think it's worth it. Canada has got along very well for ages without an armed population. As has every other developed country.
