Don't you see how this works? Once all the law abiding folks are disarmed, only the criminals will have guns. Therefore anyone with a gun is considered a criminal and as such is a legitimate target.

For once Obama is right, we're not that exceptional. But once we were.

There are simply too many guns for the government to effectively confiscate them all. The government cannot control all of the people, and there would be enough resistors to bring the government to it's knees.

And criminals as well as innocent citizens will be rounded up by the millions and slaughtered. This is how tyranny has worked from the beginning. And do not think that it cannot happen in America

As politically minded Americans still debate the meaning of, and proper response to, the Sandy Hooks massacre — and as politicians trot out old gun control programs utterly orthogonal to both public-space shootings and the normal violence that has been waning, not waxing, for years — violence around the world still presents a challenge.

In Baquba, Iraq, for instance, a suicide bomb and grenade attack killed over a score of people, and injured about 50 more. This was at a political rally. Very public. And very pointed, no matter how scattershot a bomb...
