First I never said to unarm the populace, two I never suggested such a thing, you on the other hand are suggesting, wait not suggesting, you are stating that we need arms in this country so we do not fall under the yoke of the goverment... Where do criminals get guns?
Nonsense? Really? Are you suggesting that these types, pol pot, mao, Lenin, etc.. didn't commit atrocious acts against an unarmed populace?
The problem is that if you restrict law abiding citizens, they are the only ones restricted. Criminals and government still will get these items. I really don't understand why it is best to unarm everyone but government and criminals. I'm all for background checks. But when states and the feds cant manage to get their 60K plus back log cleared up of offenders under those checks, what good is it in really stopping criminals from getting these items? It doesnt. Thats the problem. So it's a trifecta WTF on the part of those looking for harsher restrictions or outright bans on firearms..
