It think it was a Brit named Kipling who wrote . . ."When the Cambian Measures were forming, They promised perpetual peace. They said, if we gave them our weapons, that the wars of the tribes would cease ! But, when we disarmed they sold us, and delivered us bound, to our foe. And the Gods of the Copybook Headings said,"Stick to the Devil you KNOW". . . . When such things were taught in public schools, I managed passing metal-shop and chemistry, and I KNOW I could walk into a hardware store and purchase what I needed to MAKE a usable firearm. Ignoring reality does not make it go away. Unless, you want to outlaw pre-frontal lobes ! Yeah ! That'd even take care of sharp rocks and pointed sticks ! IDIOT!
