  •  In a society where there were no firearms (or (4+ / 0-)

    nearly so) it would be impossible to argue that personal ownership of firearms served any demonstrable social purpose. Who, exactly, would gun owners be protecting in that scanario?

    But here's where you totally miss the boat. I can't remember exactly the number of the NRA talking point (it's in the top five, though, I know) that says "there are 90,000 firearms laws already, and we still have crimes, so we don't need more laws, we need..."anything but more laws". Again, until you can show that crimes have not been stopped, you have no argument against the efficacy of regulation/prohibition. None. nada. Zilch.

    There can be no protection locally if we're content to ignore the fact that there are no controls globally.
