Let's put aside your assertions that the police are assaulting citizens or lying and entrapping them. We know from actual records that those things aren't true, but assume they were. How would a strict gun control law prevent any of that? How would a strict gun control law prevent crime? The fact (real fact) is that crime is highest in areas with the strictest gun control laws, and homicides are virtually non-existent in jurisdictions with the least infringements on gun rights. For example, 54% of American counties report no homicides and nearly 50% of all homicides occur in the major metropolitan areas with very strict gun control laws. Indeed, if you ignore gun crimes in the ten largest population centers, the US has one of the lowest gun crime rates in the world.

SGT Dan Gray - does the second amendment allow the government to make rules about who can hold a gun. That’s all I’m asking you’re an expert you should know the answer to that question.

There is one. It's called the Second Ammendment.

SGT Mary G. well regulated, in this context, means well trained or well equipped, not regulated by governmental Res tape and restrictions on what can be owned.
Male citizens used to be required to muster with their privately owned weapon, powder and ball, and could be fined for not being able to show they had it.

Well - there you go Sgt Tim Horton. "Required to muster" by whom? "Fined" by whom? When I happen upon ancestors who were part of the militia in colonial times, they are identified by rank, pvt, Lt. Cpt, and the militia is associated with a town or village/parish, county. Sounds like accountability and that says "well regulated" to me.

SGT Mary G. I’m glad you asked. Here is one set of regulations concerning the muster of a militia group, who is to ensure that the members are present, the requirements for minimum gear https://www.encyclopediavirginia.org/An_act_for_regulating_and_disciplining_the_Militia_May_5_1777, and the proscribed remedies for those that are deficient, including the corrective actions for those that are too poor to afford the minimum required load out.

Provide statistics to back up your claim. Police officers are not assaulting citizens or lying to entrap anyone.

For everyone using the "bad apples" excuse/argument, please remember, the idiom which you are using is fully stated as "a few bad apples SPOIL THE BUNCH". The meaning being that failure to quickly remove bad apples (bad cops) from the bunch (of all cops, mostly(?) not bad) will ultimately spoil (corrupt) them all. So... you are saying that policing in this country has been spoiled? I don't think that's what you are saying (though it may be true) but it's what's implied by the expression.

The Zoot Suit Riots in LA in 1943, peaceful civil rights demonstrations throughout the 50’s, 60’s, and 70’s, the Chicago Democratic Convention in 1968, Attica...the list would be shorter if I didn’t provide examples of police brutality, corruption, and excess.
