Read history, the reason you have a right to bear arms, was due to the fact governments and rulers in the past disarmed public so they did not have to worry about the people raising up against them.
Also, read my previous post, someone set on destruction will always be successful, you can not stop them, history has shown this many times over.
Well, not exactly. The right to bear arms was given so that a militia could be formed to protect the government, not overthrow it.
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 Supreme Court later ruled in favor of an individual's right to bear arms for "lawful" purposes, which certainly does not include overthrowing the gov't.
Still, as it has been stated here and as it's obvious from such massacres in countries where gun control is much stricter, if some nutcase wants to commit mass murder, he'll find a way to obtain guns. You can't stop a lunatic like this.
