Nothing you've said in these 6 pages of the thread has thus far REMOTELY justified how this is a good thing. I would have to share your paranoid fear that the government is behind every corner waiting to catch me without my gun (I don't have one btw) to start oppressing me for the things you've said to be a good explanation for this state of affairs.
Sorry Kul-- you are an odd bird on this topic. You are. You are trying to present your position here like your views represent gun ownership monolithically in this country. I don't see it as representing anything at all except you, one odd bird with a really fundamentalist view on gun ownership and its relationship to the Constitution and the ever-present fear of a government waiting to stomp on you. When I think of the reasons most gun nuts I've ever known want guns it has absolutely nothing to do with their desire to run off and join a militia to make sure the government never oppresses them and has everything to do with racial and socioeconomic diversity being intimately tied into their own internal perception of "danger." That's the bald truth.
