RE: Have you asked yourself these questions? Part one.
Sure, like the war on drugs gun laws are the tyrants trying to monopolize power.. Ban guns and only criminals and corporate governments (criminals) will have them. Guns can help balance power even with larger weapons (many smaller weapons to fewer larger weapons). The larger a weapon the more public and decentralized its control needs to be and therefore more smaller weapons will be needed .. Go Ghost Gunner ..
You never need to use a gun to be effective. In contrast I'll do a full 180 here. Using a gun is the worst thing you can do against a powerful adversary. That is attacking where they are strongest. Having a gun and using a gun are two very different things. Even in self defense there is a fine line. It is a line we must learn though if we are to increase our health and freedom.
