    Do you or do you not recognize that a person who owns firearms is taking far, FAR greater power over others upon themselves than someone who merely reveals potentially sensitive information?

      You made a comment on the nature of power, and "1984" is an entire book about the sadistic use of power. And nobody in the book has a gun.  You can claim you don't understand what it means, but nothing you can say makes it "incoherent."

      Or to put it another way, there are plenty of guys who beat their wives (and vice versa) without owning a gun, and plenty of gun owners that don't beat their wives.

      When people argue that they should have power over others because of their "niceness," that is the languange of the junkie, the grifter, the thief, and, not infrequntly, the violent abuser.   That is the sign of an organization that has passed the point of return on the path to disintegration.
