The people of these countries, the families, friends and neighbors discussed gun control. There were simply more people willing to accept disarmament and trust their government than there people who didn’t. In every case, the government had to have a monopoly on guns, that is long guns, rifles, current-technology military-style weapons, BEFORE they could accomplish their real agenda.
The gun control debate may seem unimportant or about hunters wanting to pursue a pastime others deem barbaric. It is not. It is a life and death struggle between those who don’t respect others and those who do. Make sure the owners of the mass communication tools do not enlist your support on the wrong side.
