whether openly or concealed. Period.

I happen to be in favor of complete confiscation, and I realize lots of people disagree with me here. But if no one had a gun. . . well just think about it.

I do know that for a very long time (although I don't know if it's changed in recent years) that police in the UK didn't carry guns. Isn't it weird to think that in that time there weren't a lot of killings of despised minorities? Or that there weren't a lot of mass murders of innocent civilians? I wonder why that would be the case. Could it be from the lack of guns available to ordinary people? Naaah. Must be something else at work.
