I know a lot of gun control people and they're not stupid. They believe that if all guns were eliminated, that the world would be a peaceful place. They don't realize that violent crime would actually rise, as it has in Australia and Great Britain, because the weak, the old, the disabled, the females and the outnumbered would be defenseless against the young thugs, as such people are in our "gun free" inner cities. I've seen a study of primitive civilizations that were judged to be extremely brutal based on the number of smashed skulls in their burial plots. As Samuel Colt said, a gun is an equalizer.
