It's an American thing.
Guns in the hands of citizens enables self defense, appreciation of these assets, common security, comfort and peace of mind, and precludes unlawful

Just a scenario. In Liberty City a few years back, there was a riot, and after these geniuses burned their own neighborhoods, they wanted to continue
their rampage on adjacent neighborhoods. One problem. The homeowners were in the streets, armed to the teeth, and as a result, they were able to
contain the chaos and destruction. Keep in mind, the cops would not go near these areas.
In Los Angeles, same thing. Lots of folks went on a rampage, dragging unaware passing motorists from their cars and doing their best to kill them.
Compare to France a while back when young Muslims went on a rampage, burning cars and such. Who to stop them? And it went on, and on, and on. Had a
few armed citizens dropped a few ragheads in the street, the others would have reconsidered their actions. It's great fun to destroy other's
property, but it's not worth your life. (as a rule)
Naw, if Obama loses, and anyone wants to come into my neighborhood to raise hell, there are a number of us will send them straight to hell. In other
words, it will be a short riot here. It won't matter how big they are, how fast they can run, how pissed off they are.
Everything runs in cycles. Strict gun control, then later a more conservative group gets in, and a reversal of gun control. The problem is the
