"While the Leftist response to angry & sociopathic young men is to propose disarming all of us, including the law abiding & socially responsible--thus demeaning & humiliating all of us--effectively "throwing out the baby with the bath water"; a denial of self-reliance, self-defense & individual responsibility; a course not only inimical to personal freedom & security, but hardly calculated to produce anything socially constructive; George Washington proposed the Swiss system," . . .

A disarmed citizenry is a boon for the criminal element.
Those who promote the banning of guns are taking the side of the criminals while they themselves and their bodyguards will make certain to remain armed.
Here is another instance where lawmakers write laws that are applicable for anyone else but themselves.

It goes even deeper. Under the false flags of "Feminism" and "Equality", the gender-biased normal roles of humans in their cultures are being undermined.
It is no accident that the male has traditionally been the defender of the female and offspring, it is a survival mechanism which propagates the species.
Nor is it an accident that those best equipped by nature to feed the very young, those who have nurtured them from their conception have traditionally been the ones to raise the offspring in the traditional roles of nurturing or defending.
To eliminate these roles in our culture is not only unnatural, but leaves only the State to be mother and Father. This is the final assault on the family structure which has carried humans from living in caves to the modern era, not an improvement in either "equality" nor military defense.
The net effect of turning young men into metrosexual wimps and young women into warfighters is that the entire basic structure of human interaction is being damaged.
But what would one expect from those who promote the unnatural behaviours of homosexuals?
While there are and always have been those women who have been warriors, exceptions to the rule, it is the nurturing roles at which women excel.

Notice that the Leftist answer to every problem is to deny some aspect of the traditional freedom of responsible people to act in their own interest, with respect to that problem. It has become almost a universal trait of the Left. They are not just against individualism & for big government. They have a pathological, knee-jerk reaction, no matter the specific subject.
