I don't think people realize that guns can be used for recreation. I love to take my guns out and go shooting.
When my fiancee is out of town, I keep my 9mm fully loaded in the drawer of my bedside table. We also have a beautiful antique gun cabinet absolutely
filled with guns.
In my neck of the woods, EVERYONE has a gun. And everyone else knows it. So obviously, burglaries are minimal.
Taking away the LEGAL registered guns from normal people and you will only leave the unregistered, illegal firearms in the hands of criminals. I would
rather not let those types of people have an advantage over me.
Also, in this little gunless scenario, would police have guns? If they didn't, that would be stupid. What would they defend themselves with, water
balloons? If they did have guns, though, and noone else did, you don't think any corrupt cops would try to sell guns on the black market?
Also, knowing how corrupt law enforcement can be, I really wouldn't want to be defenseless myself and yet know that the local police have guns. When
only the police have guns, thats called a police state. If you want to just hand over your weapons, which are one of the rights we amazingly still
have, go ahead. I'm not going to. Just line up like sheeple and hand your guns over to TPTB. In fact why don't you give up your right to free speech
as well? Lets just grab some whiteout and "fix" the constitution. I for one, will never freely give the government anymore power over me than it
already has. They can take my guns over my cold, dead, body.
Those who would give up Essential Liberty
to purchase a little Temporary Safety,
deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.
