Oh Yeah let's all get in line. Yeah, no way to protect ourselves from the common criminal, but that's OK cause after they kill us the local DA will put them in jail for 3-4-5 years to teach them a lesson, oh and then without firearms we could not put down a corrupt government, not that there are any corrupt governments around they are all just dandy, just a nasty rumor I’ve may have heard from some radial freedom loving folks.
It has worked so well in England, and Australia they no longer have anything to fear. Oh, well maybe for the rare exception of fearing the government, oh yeah and maybe the crooks, and gang members, and drug dealers, and Jihadists, and any of a variety of other criminals who could care less about a firearms conviction and what the government will take away next, but that's only because we are already felons and having a gun is secondary to our other crimes, and that's only if you are alive to testify against them in court.
