he atheist rejects the claim that there is a
supernatural entity or force that interacts with existence...
Because it is a claim without basis.
Atheism makes no claims whatsoever.
Atheism asserts nothing.
Atheism IS NOT an act or an action
IT IS a position
It has no objective.
Comparatively / Conversely:
Anti-theism IS an act or an action
It IS NOT a position
It has an objective.
Not all ATHEISTS are ANTI-THEIST.
All ANTI-THEISTS are ATHEIST.

I have yet to encounter a situation where a fire arm was necessary...
And thinking that a well armed populace would be able to win a firefight against what is an armored government...
Local police are backed up by County Sherrifs' are backed up by State Police are backed up by Federal Agents and the National Guard are backed up by the Army...
The fight is not any where close to fair... It was lost by the 'few' before it ever began.
Hell, the Air Force blew up a city block in New Jersey in the early 70's (YES - Really!) - Because of the threat it posed.
And if you shoot someone while defending yourself / your home - You are going to have yourself arrested, charges filed, and be saddled with attorney fees that that far exceed the value of what could have been taken in a home invasion etc...
For all of that... I'm still not 'against' ownership.
- I just can't seem to ignore the absurdity that comes with many of the justifications that are offered.
The Judicial system and legal profession make a lot of money as long as guns flow freely... And it also keeps and maintains a level of fear and intimidation at hand...
Fear of being assaulted, and / or fear that if you step out of line, you will find yourself in one of several 'Sodomy Centers for the Willing and Unfortunate' - Penitentiaries that the the Judicial system keep well stocked and at a low boil - Can you perceive of a more ominous and threatening ever present obelisk than 'Prison'?
The concept of 'Guns' both calms and feeds the same cultured insecurities.
(the above pic relates to how I feel about that culture)
