What on Earth is your point? Armies of the past didnt use guns, therefore guns should not be controlled? The two things are completely unrelated.

There should be a ban on all assult weapons!!!!  The general public should've never had access to them, they're made for the military use in combat situations!!!!
guns were and still are manufactured for one sole intent, to kill!!!!!!!!!   Sure, a gun won't kill anybody, that is, until someone picks it up to use on someone else, then
it's justified to say guns do kill people!!!!     If all of the guns in the world are put into a locked glass case, permanently, then you can say guns don't kill people!!!!

The general public is supposed to have access to military style weapons to kill those who try to strip them of their rights.

Maybe the government should make laws to regulate purchases of baseball bats, knives, bows/arrows,
garden tools, etc,etc. They all could be used as potential weapons. ;)

Maybe the government should make laws and regulate purchases of vehicles. Oh wait, they already do...

because the last couple of people who've taken up arms have shaken the government to it's core - ohh wait, they got steam rollered, callee dangerous and then killed.

I must not fear. Fear is the Mind-Killer. It is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and to move through me. And when it is gone I will turn the inner eye to see it's path.
When the fear is gone, there will be nothing.
Only I will remain.

Ah, comparing guns to knives and bats. Might as well compare nukes to guns and let them sell plutonium as well.

Yeah that was true at that time. But no longer. Thomas Jefferson, a true patriot, would be screaming for gun bans today.

Does not bloody matter
That's the point.   No, they don't, so why ban them in reaction to this tragedy?

Handguns are not only actually relevant, they're even more dangerous than rifles indoors because it's very difficult to disarm someone of a handgun when their hand is wrapped around it.  

But Obama is using the emotional dander kicked up by this tragedy as a political opportunity to spuriously ban something else.   Something that only our two-faced anti-gun liberals who somehow have no problem with our lawmakers' gun-blazing policies could possibly whine our lawmakers into passing a ban on.

The government will have legal credibility banning our guns after we earn some legal credibility for banning its guns.   I know that somehow the government isn't mentally ill to continuously drop bombs on other countries and knowingly kill children in the process of murdering suspects, I know that every gun-hating American would immediately turn pacifist the moment a foreign country started bombing our neighborhoods with drones, so how about we limit B-52s to a maximum of six bombs per payload, and due to a new loading mechanism taxpayers will have to pay to have installed, B-52s will only be able to drop one bomb at a time.  Many, many, many assault weapons to deal with, so this is only the very beginning and the first example among many.

And please note, I didn't say to take the bombers away from the government, e.g. to ban them altogether.   I'm not sure why I didn't say that now.  It would be more equivalent to what Obama wants to do.

"The power to declare war, including the power of judging the causes of war, is fully and exclusively vested in the Legislature.  The Executive has no right, in any case, to decide the question" ~ James Madison
"Peace cannot be achieved by force, only by understanding."  ~ Albert Einstein
"To deny people their human rights is to challenge their very humanity.   To impose on them a wretched life of hunger and deprivation is to dehumanize them." ~ Nelson Mandela

Seriously? He'd be screaming about the treason that is going on in Government today.
