If someone wants to own the gun, there is always way. I understand the fight for rights to own the weapon there.
Here it is not like that, but still number of people own the weapon.
It is easier to control the folks if they are not armed, if they defenseless. I would never get my self in situation to be without (many) weapons again, no matter what that would required, illegal or not.
It is their job to make laws, and to try to f..k us all over, it is our job to avoid that and outsmart them.
