not particularly. Having lost two cousins to felons who were not even supposed to have firearms (like the law matters to felons), I don’t understand the idea of making for more victims by limiting guns to those who prey on the rest of us. If gun control had ever worked anywhere it was done, I might be more sympathetic to it, but it’s invariably a prelude to takeover or to prevent the public from stopping some evil. China, Russia, Germany, Italy, etc. History repeats itself..
It’s an old idea. In medieval times feudal lords forbade swords to the public so that they could do evil without worrying about being stopped. So, people made pole arms when conditions became unendurable.They were so successful that armies like the Swiss adopted them. The Philistines, after conquering part of Israel, forbade blacksmithing so that Israel would be unarmed. .1 Samuel 13:19-23 “19 Now no blacksmith could be found in all the land of Israel, for the Philistines said, “Otherwise the Hebrews will make [p]swords or spears.” 20 So all Israel went down to the Philistines, each to sharpen his plowshare, his mattock, his axe, and his hoe. 21 The charge was [q]two-thirds of a shekel for the plowshares, the mattocks, the forks, and the axes, and to fix the hoes. 22 So it came about on the day of battle that neither sword nor spear was found in the hands of any of the people who were with Saul and Jonathan, but they were found with Saul and his son Jonathan. 23 And the garrison of the Philistines went out to the pass of Michmash.”.VP Biden alluded to “revolution” about two weeks ago. In the last 4 years we’ve had one Democrat official after another speak of “socialist revolution”, “we need a revolution”, and so on. Scary stuff.
