It is my hope that other nations comprehend why USA need guns.
1. For a small nation state, with a dense population of 20million living within a packed land area of 7000sq kilometres, guns are DEFINATELY danger to
each other living in such close proximity, whereby just a spark of anger can cause human nature to flare up and whip out the gun, a tool that kills.
So too a knife, or even a humble matchstick upon dry grass on a hot summer's day.
For a large nation state, with sparse population of 20 million inhabitants living within a wide open terrian of 700,000 sq kilometres, guns are
DEFINATELY NECESSARY to protect one and one's loved ones, the heavier weapon the more effective, as help would be probable miles and hours away.
Smaller nations are more easily governed, as compared to larger nations, espacially where the diversity is more. And USA is a population of 300
million today with a large diverse landmass.
2. Throughout the course of human history, mankind had seen how effective WMDs of the then eras had been with a small group enslaving and tyranising
the larger unarmed populaton, true even today such as Syria and hungry North Korea.
Should the largest army in the world - China CCP's - decides to wage a war upon USA with its 2 million strong army, it will NOT BE a 300,000 US
military that China will face. It will be a staggering 200 MILLION armed citizens that the commies will face, whom may even conquer the China landmass
as blowback if it wishes so.
Even Julius Caesar, the greatest general in the history of our progressive civilisations, will BAULK at such figures and turn back. He faced millions
of gauls, but with superiour training and tech, his few thousand cohorts could hold the germans off. But will 200 million armed and equally
intelligent americans? China knows when to stay silent and eat the humble pie.
3. USA, through its sacred Constitution, copied by many other nations around the world, is carrying mankind's manifest destiny. It is NOTHING to be
proud of, for it comes wih a heavy, very heavy responsiblity to other fellow humankind often paid in blood by american sons and daughters, except for
the honor of being held in the highest esteem by all, even if the all do not show it so as not to inflate the ego of americans.
How many times had the rest of world poked fun at americans, lampooned, insulted, burnt flags and even murdered americans, but when the chips are
down, it was always USA that these same cretins turned to, such as the middle east, africa, and soon Asia?
And USA had never failed to answer the call for help, had shared wealth and even precious blood of american sons, daughters and families to help save
America stands strong because of the sacred Constitution, and the ever progressive, innovative and resiliant People, capable of change and adaptable
to every circumstances thrown at them, whom knows what is discrimination, suffering and pain foremost being an immigrant society since the founding
days, and had never wish or do ill upon any fellow innocent humankind less the criminals and the evil ones of humanity.
Destroying the 2nd amendment is akin to flushing down the sacred Constitution down into the drain pipe. Without the power of might through the barrel
of guns by citizens, only enslavement, meekness, resignedness to circumstances will follow, as proven by history by ambitious men whom ruled by power
and might, regardless if he was the king, or just a mafia or illicit drug crimeboss with huge organisational prowess.
4. Some claimed that murderers are sane man, for they could plan well ahead to conduct their gruesome activities. But fact is, which sane human would
go out of his way to kill INNOCENT men, women and children?
Not all mentally ill will become mass murderers, but most certainly, NO ONE would call those who slaughter innocents are sane human beings.
Thus, mankind MUST acknowledge such facts and deal with the CRITICAL REALITY - MENTAL ILLNESS, rather than to toy with the idea that guns kill, when
truth is that even a simple gas lighter struck upon intentionally leaked gas within an apartment block filled with innocent people WILL kill equally,
if not far more.
