Excellent points...especially in the last paragraph.
Here's how I look at it...
If the government has guns, then we-the-people should have guns.
After all, it is we-the-people who are the government.
...and I'd like to say I'm not a gun enthusiast.
Actually, I am ALL FOR gun control...100%
But I mean 100%...
Just as soon as all the world's governments, their military forces,
and their police, agree to disarm completely, then I will HAPPILY
turn over all my weapons.
But there is NO CHANCE of that EVER happening. And then reason
why is because no matter how long our species survives, there will
ALWAYS be those among us who are not satisfied with ONLY controlling
themselves. There will always be people who are only satisfied when
they are in control of others...
It's just the left-over vestiges of the survival-of-the-fittest instinctual
processess that put as at the top of the food chain to begin with...
Instinct versus intellect...and instinct is better armed
