“If I don’t have a right to own high-capacity arms, I can’t consent to have the government own high-capacity arms, either.”

That is the crux of the arguement that many people just don’t get. A government, any government, with a monopoly on violence, in time, will employ it on any person, persons, organizations and/or groups of people deemed to be “enemies of the state”.

What’s coming down the road will be policies that are nothing more than arrogance, envy and elitist conceit cloaked in altruism.

They have a monopoly on the LEGAL USE of violence.
They cannot be allowed to have a blanket monopoly on the use of violence.
