13. Can't always get what you want.
I think a noted British philosopher once said something along those lines...
As for the rest of your screed, virtually nothing in it bears the slightest resemblance to reality. Hard to know where to start.
First, the ATF is not the military. They have nothing to do with each other, and the latter is forbidden by law to act in matters of domestic law enforcement. That law exists for a damn good reason.
Next, the military isn't the "well regulated militia." One can make the case that the National Guard is part of the militia, but the regular military is just that: the regular military. They're not the same thing.
As for "my" Bibles, religion, pornography, paranoia, and hated, I have none of the above. I'm an atheist, a rather hard-core liberal (a confirmed socialist), a feminist, and my mental health's just fine, thanks. Keep your inane, borderline-slanderous assumptions to yourself, pal.
Loved this gem: "assault machine guns." You really don't know the first thing about firearms, do you?
Oh, and one last thing: "All civilians turn in your assault rifles, voluntarily, patriotically, peacefully, you don't need them, our soldiers do." No, not really. They have plenty of their own. Civilians don't have "assault rifles," save in very, very small numbers. They have millions of semi-automatic rifles and carbines that look like actual assault rifles, but don't actually operate like assault rifles (which can fire in fully-automatic mode, like a machine gun; the civilian ones can't).
Still, as uninformed-but-hysterical rants go, that one was top notch. I'm sure you feel much better now...
