What do you expect us to do? Go kill Fed chairman and CEOs? Last time I checked that would just be terrorism.
Exactly. Stop using the argument , that gun ownership is to prevent tyranny, as it isn't, this is self evident. Whether these theoretical actions
should classed as terrorism is another matter all together.
The legal and illegal guns that permeate US society give people a sense of power and control over their lives in an otherwise uncontrollable society,
where employment chances are minimal for even those with university degrees.
Gun ownership sells the lie that the US is this "Land of the Free". It is used by those on the right to illuminate the free choice that Americans
have as citizens which can never and should never be taken away, when in reality there is little freedom. Little economic or societal freedom.
I'm not just spouting off on one from my armchair here in the U.K. I have been to the US six times and seen and heard this from American citizens.
One chap, Eric, was living in a mobile home, as the bank had taken his house. He had a truck full of guns though, which gave him a sense of
empowerment, which in reality didn't exist.
