    If we outlawed guns, only the criminals and the government would have them.

    The US is recognized as the greatest threat to peace all over the world.  Nobody else comes close.

    Has the FBI and DEA become standing armies or the War on Drugs become a war against American citizens for profit.

    With the US outspending more on the Department of War that almost the entire world combined is there no concern that maybe and armed citizenry being a smart decision?

    With corporate power being absolute in our society, which implies dominion over military operations as well, does it make sense to disarm the populace?

    I've been in rooms full of Democrats, and asked the question "does anyone here trust the government?"  Only a few raise their hands at best.  

    Conclusion:  IF we really want to reduce gun violence in our society, banning guns will not do it but it will turn a much larger percentage of our population into criminals and I am sure a major portion of our population will consider it an act of war on American citizens.  All we have to do is remember how we butchered native Americans as a lesson for the rest of us.

    If you want to reduce gun violence in our society you have to address drug prohibition, drug prohibition and the corruption associated with the Drug War.

    When this government declares war on its own citizens, and I have no doubt it will, I will be on the side of the patriots and heir guberment will be my enemy.
