Do guns and attorneys mix well?

I guess my only question for him would be "as long as we have guns do we need rights?"

Actually guns are not a substitute for rights, but only a means to them. And as is written under common law, "qui destruit medium, destruit finem," i.e. whoever destroys the means, destroys the end."

Thus, whoever takes away guns, takes away rights protected by them.

A favorite trick of totalitarians is to deny that guns are a means to rights, in order to confuse the issue and distract from the right being destroyed, to the EXISTENCE of that right; this puts citizens on trial with the burden of proof to  prove their rights against  arbitrary legislation, rather than force the government to prove that rights are not being violated before ENACTING the legislation.
Rather, a simple claim is alleged, and guns are banned, with conditions likewise placed on any ownership or carrying rights, rendering them less effective.
The effect is simply that government gets the guns, and we don't.
