Although the Nazis made good use of gun laws, I believe gun control was established under the Weimar Republic. Such laws ironically were put in place to keep them out of the hands of the Nazis and communists.

Thnaks. Although I do not own guns myself, my next door neighbor is a fully armed, Dallas cop. I sleep better that way.

And in Texas, car-jacking is now almost non-existent. Too many window breakers and would-be car thieves ended up eating lead too often.

I think that even here in the USA that gun ownership has caused restraint on the government.

Think of the 90s, there was a little effort by the government to over assert themselves and it resulted in many deaths that caused bad publicity and led to the government restraining itself.

Anti-gun people mock the idea that armed civilians can defeat the government and I don’t disagree with them.

I make two points, one is that if we are armed to the teeth then it isn’t just a matter of our sons in the military performing their duty to impose order.

If we are armed then they have to kill us by the thousands and that is a whole different hurdle for a demigod to sell to our own uniformed children.

The second point is that while imposing a new order would be difficult enough in America, it would be hugely more difficult politically if the body count climbed into the countless thousands due to armed resistance.

I think that even liberals understand these arguments.

Would you please source these Australian numbers? Without the bona fides, they will be useless in debating the gun grabbers. Not that I am doubting you, but I always like to be very careful that the data I cite are verified.

Thanks.

Best to live under our own gun rather that someone else’.
