It is essential that all "Stand Your Ground" and self-defense laws be repealed immediately and that all guns be confiscated from law-abiding citizens in order to ensure that no guns are used in defense of life, liberty, or property. The imposition of a police state is impossible to accomplish with those laws in place and with people having guns of their own to defend themselves. And we all know that the government is all-wise, all-caring, and only operates with our own best interests at heart. We, the Great Unwashed, do not know what is best for us. We are too dumb to even know that we don't know what is best for us. We would all be far better off if we simply ceded our lives and liberties to The Government.
