They ask does a well-regulated militia need AR-15s and AK-47s, which are “weapons of war and mass destruction”. (Nilsen) The people that say this need to realize that we have had these guns for multiple decades and that they don’t walk around and shoot the people by themselves.

He needed help and seeked attention from others until one day, a “do-good” counselor called his house and got him put back into the school system.
