I believe every sane American should own some kind of firearm. You think Germany in the 30’s woulda turned out different if it was an armed populace? You think the American Indians wish they woulda armed up, and banded together, around 1820-1845? Guns don’t kill people, governments kill people. Check the stats! I think you’ll find that during the previous centuries, governments have a way higher kill rate than the populace picking each other off. But, I’m willing to give up my right to bear arms. Just as soon as the government lays down their arms. End the quasi-police state, too. Then we’re good.
