I believe we should re-examine our love affair with guns. They don’t protect us from tyranny. Guns are toys in America. Guns are a dangerous hobby. Guns are a macho accessory, no different from a shiny sports car.
It's really quite true.
I love staring at my weapons, and taking them out to the range. I love knowing that if someone ever attempts to break in my house while I am home, they will have x12 .40 cal rounds unloaded into them until they die to protect what is mine. Do I NEED a gun? No; not if the person breaking into my house doesn't have one either... a sword would be fine by me. A more honorable fight. If NOBODY owned a gun, NOBODY would need a gun for protection. Will that EVER happen? I don't think so.
But honestly, Whitlock is right.
