“Because the people from the government who are going to come for my guns will have 30 round magazines”
That’s a great answer, although it will be more than your guns they’re ultimately coming for.
One thing I always try to impress upon gun banners with their starry eyed dream of a perfectly safe nation is that there is no perfectly safe nation. You get to choose whether you live in a country that suffers the occasional spree shooting or the occasional genocide. Armed people, to paraphrase Stalin, suffer tragedies. Disarmed people become statistics.
That would be my only edit. That it’s not the guns they’re ultimately after. It’s the power to bend or break you without fear of retaliation.
Privately owned guns is the biggest hurdle that these people have to get over in order to achieve their goal of total subjugation.
Ding, ding, ding!
