Don’t forget “cowards” as related by our distinguished AG – still applies to these types although I’m sure that’s not the way he meant it. Wonder what will happen if the producers decide to quit “providing” for the non-producers? Back during the depression (the real one) days, men picked up their fishing rods and squirrel rifles and fed their family from what they could catch. Wonder how many would do that today or just sit by and wait for “rescue” by papa gubmint? I’m betting it would be damn near a complete reversal – they’ve just been too structured to getting their handouts.
Arms discourage and keep the invader and plunderer in awe, and preserve order in the world as well as property... mischief would ensue were the law-abiding deprived of the use of them.
