Think its a little odd that the antis are noting that society has gone in such a way that nobody, even law abiding upstanding citizens can be trusted with a gun…but Governments have gone such a way that we never need to fear tyrannical governments like The Third Reich, The USSR, China, North Korea, Iran, Venezuela, the British Raj, The Sudanese Genocide, among many others.
I mean if society is going to pot, then why isn’t the rulers? If we can say “Never again will government slaughter of citizens occur on US Soil!” then why can’t we just say “Never Again” to mass shootings in the same glib fashion?
Of course the real answer lives in between. People are good, and governments as a whole don’t have desire for mass graves or sprawling prison camps. But bad people, and leaders happen from time-to-time, and either monster is afraid of armed resistance.
