If he becomes deranged enough to brandish his weapon irresponsibly and threaten to shoot the general citizenry or actually begins doing so, is dumb enough not to realize that pull trigger = forever dead, or intent upon murdering a specific person (say, his wife or one of his children) then by all means gun his ass down, and pry his gun from his cold dead fingers, for he is an intolerable danger to his fellow citizens. If not, then do not knock down his door to get his gun; leave him alone. I never said anything about repealing the 2nd amendment, but irresponsible people (violent criminals, the mentally deranged and/or deficient, children, and spouse and/or child abusers) should not be given the opportunity to blow people away just to protect other peoples' freedoms (without life, freedom does not exist).

If you're the attacker, you should expect the same; if you're likely to be an attacker, you shouldn't own a gun.
