gun rights are the american backbone, (“A well-regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.”) (the 2nd ammendment) guns are more often used in defense than to blindly kill

It's kind of pointless amendment because of the civil war, a lot of people apparently don't care about a "free state". Otherwise, the states would have seceded.

the ultimate problem with giving guns to the people is that the people can get really fussy, and fussy people can make really big messes. Most american wars don't get that many casualties as the civil war, I guess Vietnam would be an exception, but I think the problem would have been reduced if certain people didn't have convenient access to guns. And if we're talking about causalities you shouldn't forget about school shootings.

And the other problem is why should the government grant these rights anymore? The only thing that are a real threat to a free state is tyrannical government. And if that's the case why would the government even want to give gun rights if it means the main thing that'll be used is against them?

While i do agree with you that one should have some right of self-defense, but I think there should be some limitations that should be imposed on this. Obviously the common pedestrian doesn't need to be hauling around certain kinds of assault weaponry (rpgs,explosives, artillery, machine guns, et cetera) The question is how much weaponry do you need to give people? Does it have to go all the way to guns? Why not just give everybody a batarang, it worked for batman.
