The reason people want guns is because they are afraid.
having a gun does not stop their fear.
It does make them feel powerful.
although that is an illusion.
I don't think guns can preserve our 'rights' because I don't think we ever had any. That was an illusion.
I don't think laws do anything at all, so I don't want them making laws about guns. The idea that laws protect anyone is an illusion just like the
idea that guns protect people.
The people who want guns to 'have a revolution if necessary' live in the highest illusion, because your little stockpiles of guns and tiny piles of
ammo are almost meaningless. This is not 1492.
Even if there was truly popular support for a violent revolution, the result would be a mired mess like Iraq, only whoever finally won would likely be
more horrific than our fascist government is now. Revolutions succeed only if the revolutionaries get guns and ammo from some foreign source on a
continuing basis, especially ammo. and when the smoke settles, that foreign power usually runs the show.
I was trained as an expert in that strategy, so I know it for a fact.
On the other hand, if the minds of the population changes and everyone stops doing what they are told, the leaders face their mortality and give up
power, usually suddenly. Peaceful revolutions have been 100% successful since WWII.
I will not kill another even to save my own life, or the lives of my family, because the odds are it won't. I won't obey a man with a gun regardless
of his threats, because I am not afraid to die. Notice that I am still alive.
Wake up, folks. Get rid of your fear and it's pre-programming of your mind, and you will be freer than almost anyone, regardless of the laws, and
then having guns or not becomes irrelevant and you will do what works best for everyone in every situation. I've walked the talk so I know.
