What a specious argument. We now have enough evidence to show that broad gun liberties, not quite up to what we have via our Bill of Rights in the Constitution, improve "gun" violence rates.
Furthermore, what do you do about a government that sells guns to Mexican drug gangs? What do you do about a government interested in controlling and suppressing speech via targeted IRS tax-harassment? What do you do about a government interested in dictating to its people?
Revolt is coming.
