There will always be loons that will misuse their rights and deprive others of theirs. But that is part of the price of freedom and liberty. And in a truly free society the armed citizen that has no intent of harming others stands a better chance of stopping someone than those who are unarmed.

But the whole intention and point of the 2nd Amendment was to ensure the citizen had the capability and power to keep the federal government in check should they step out of line. This intent has been covered in numerous documents created by the authors.
I agree with #2 & #3 (to a different degree than you clearly) but #1 is a stretch to say the least. If they are arming a P51 then they can arm a Cessna as well. To bring classic military planes into the debate is clearly because they were weapons system at one time, as I said there are not strafing attacks because they are no longer armed. The poster might as well used any plane as a example.
