Guest Post: Feinstein's Gun Control Bill Will Trigger The Next American Revolution

Submitted by Brandon Smith of Alt-Market blog,

All political power comes from the barrel of a gun. The communist party must command all the guns, that way, no guns can ever be used to command the party - Mao Tse Tung

After a shooting spree, they always want to take the guns away from the people who didn't do it. I sure as hell wouldn't want to live in a society where the only people allowed guns are the police and the military - William Burroughs

Revolution?  Yes, it all sounds rather “extreme”, but the cold hard reality of our era is not going to comfort us with diplomacies and niceties, so honestly, why should I have to sugar coat anything?  We live in extreme times and there is no longer room for prancing around the ultimate consequences of that which is taking place in America today.  This country is increasingly sliding towards the edge of internal conflict.  The Liberty Movement and true Constitutionalists see it, subsections of Republicans and Democrats see it, and most of all, the federal government sees it.  In fact, they may even be counting on it. 

Over the past two years alone, multiple draconian policies have been enacted through executive order by the Obama Administration which build upon the civil liberty crushing actions of George W. Bush and press far beyond.  The Patriot Acts, the FISA domestic spy bill, the bailouts of corrupt international banks, attempts at CISPA and SOPA, actions like the NDAA authorizing the treatment of U.S. citizens as “enemy combatants” without rights to due process; all paint a picture so clear only a one-celled amoeba (or your average suburban yuppie) would not see it.  You and I, and everyone else for that matter, have been designated potential targets of the state.  Our rights have been made forfeit.

There is no ambiguous or muddled separation between the citizenry and the government anymore.  The separation is absolute.  It is undeniable.  It is vast.  It is only a matter of time and momentum, and eventually there will be unbridled oppression, dissent, and conflict.  All that is required is a trigger, and I believe that trigger has arrived…       

Though made to appear “complex”, the gun control debate is actually an incredibly simple issue.  It all boils down to a couple of questions which gun grabbers rarely ask:  How does the 2nd Amendment affect the future?  That is to say, what was the original intent, and should we still value that intent as it applies to tomorrow?  And, what will really happen if it is forcibly removed?  Gun opponents act as though they are unaware of these questions, or maybe they don’t care.  However, it is vital to their safety and the safety of our culture in general that they do finally consider the bigger picture. 

We’ve all heard the prefabricated gun control talking points before.  Some of them so old they predate us.  They are numerous and most of them incredibly thin.  The gist of the anti-gun position, though, could be boiled down to these three points...

Common Anti-Gun Arguments:

1) The 2nd Amendment is “outdated” and no longer relevant in today’s modern society.

2) We do not want to stop you from “defending yourself”, or interfere with the American tradition of hunting, but people do not need “military assault weapons” for either.

3) Your claimed freedom to own guns should not supersede my freedom to live without fear of guns.  We exist in a society, and our society requires us to give up certain freedoms so that it can function.

Again, in response to these arguments, I have to ask, what does the 2nd Amendment mean for the future?  What was its original intent?  Gun control advocates would like to ignore the fact that the Constitution specifically protects a broad application of gun ownership, but when they cannot deny the legality of it, they instead turn to more abstract and existential methods of attack.  They try to twist the original intent of the 2nd Amendment to further their goals.  To respond briefly to each of the above fallacies:   

1) The right to self defense from ANY threat, whether it be an individual, or a criminal government, does not “outdate”.  It is a universal and eternal freedom.  It is a foundational pillar of natural law.  Even if the 2nd Amendment did not exist, I would still have the inborn right to arm and protect myself and those I love, and the best way to do that is to own firearms.  The men who drafted the Constitution were far more intelligent than any pithy gun grabber today, yet, these socialist errand boys seem to believe that they have “surpassed” the wisdom of the Founders.  The amount of ego required to fuel such an attitude boggles the mind…

Gun violence and violence in general will not end simply by banning firearms.  The very idea that any society can remove all weapons from their sight is naïve to begin with.  Criminals always find a way.  Murder, rape, and mayhem will continue until you confront the root problem, which is the human mind, and the human heart.  Only when these two things are balanced in all people will violence end.  Disarming good men and women has never made a society “safer”.  When the power of defense is removed from the people, someone, somewhere, will seek to abuse their weakness.  The most armed entity of the time invariably becomes the subjugator, and usually this is the government.  Nazi Germany, Stalinist Russia, Mao’s China, Pol Pot’s Cambodia, etc, all contained disarmed populations.  The guns were gone, and still millions upon millions died.  Modern day Mexico is a perfect example of a disarmed population that is now living in terror because of criminal organizations (which, of course, still have guns).  Disarmament does NOT end gun violence, it only changes the dynamic of who uses that violence, and it makes innocent victims easier to attack.

2) Because the legal argument over the “interpretation” of the 2nd Amendment is essentially over, and the Supreme Court has ruled that gun rights do indeed apply to individuals, and not just collective bodies like the National Guard, gun grabbers are now reverting to the argument that we ARE allowed to defend ourselves with firearms, but the kinds of firearms we are able to use can still be limited.  The goal of this argument is to fool gun owners who only possess conventional firearms (hunting rifles) into believing that they will not be personally affected if they support a ban on military style weapons.  These wishy-washy hunting enthusiasts are often referred to as “Elmer Fudds” because of their gullibility.

All gun confiscation programs start by chipping away at the outer barriers of gun ownership.  Like termites slowly chewing away at the wooden skeleton of a home, anti-gun proponents start small and end by destroying the entire edifice.  Anyone who believes Feinstein’s legislation will begin and end with AR-15’s and AK-47’s is living in fantasy land.  That said, the 2nd Amendment was not established for hunting purposes.  Nowhere in the writings of the Founding Fathers do they mention “hunting” as their primary concern.  Instead, gun rights are protected in order to ensure that the citizenry remains dominant over any centralized government that turns to corruption.  We are supposed to police our own political leaders, and without military style arms, this becomes increasingly difficult. 

Gun grabbers will argue that our government is not the enemy because it is derived through democratic elections.  They will say that we can change it anytime we like in the voting box.  I would point out that regardless of which party is placed in power through elections, nothing in terms of our direction as a country has been changed, and, that both parties support almost identical policies.  For instance, Obama has come out in favor of nearly identical policy initiatives to Bush, and I can almost guarantee that many Republicans will sign onto the gun control efforts of Democrats despite their supposed pro-gun rhetoric.  When the two party system becomes a one party system, voting becomes irrelevant. 

Finally, they will admonish the idea of an armed citizenry keeping the government in check as a “fairy tale”.  They will claim that in the face of modern military might, constitutionalists would be crushed.  For what can an AK-47 do to an F-15?  Apparently, they have never heard of Afghanistan, which has used AK-47’s and 30 year old armaments to repel two technologically advanced armies; the Soviet Union and the U.S.  Of course, the Afghanis did not allow themselves to be disarmed…   

3) Here is where we get into the nonsense of intellectual idiocy.  The only real skill which academics seem to have is jumbling piles of logical fallacies together to make a single argument that sounds “rational”, but, in fact, isn’t.  The third debate point is an extremely collectivist one, and collectivist arguments generally exploit the idea that individuals must sacrifice their personal freedoms in order for the group to function. 

The truth is, the group does not matter.  The perceived collective concerns and fears of a mass of people are not relevant.  All that matters are the concerns of the singular man or woman, and whether or not those concerns are legitimate.  If a person “fears” guns and gun violence, then that is their private problem, not the problem of our entire society.  We as gun owners should not have to relinquish our rights because others are afraid of what MIGHT happen to them.  We should demand that they control THEIR fear, instead of being allowed to control OUR guns.  Just because a portion of our country shares this individual fear does not make that fear any more credible, or any more our problem.      

Do They Know What They Are In For...?

Feinstein’s campaign for gun control is not hers alone; it has been the overall establishment’s work in progress for decades.  I covered the broad based arguments of gun control advocates above because I wanted to illustrate the tangibility of gun ownership.  I want to show you where we stand as constitutionalists, and I can say confidently that our moral and intellectual footing is strong.  To be clear, when defenders of a particular idea are right in their position, they are much more likely to fight and die for that position, and they are much more likely to win.  

In the beginning I asked what the 2nd Amendment means for the future of this country.  Not only if it continues, but if it disappears.  If I was a gun control proponent, I would weigh the aftereffects of my actions carefully, because the penalties will likely be dire…

I have heard it argued that Americans are passive.  We didn’t rise up against the last Assault Weapons Ban. We didn’t rise up against the Patriot Act.  We didn’t rise up against TSA molestation.  We didn’t rise up against warrantless wiretapping, the assassination of U.S. citizens, or even the NDAA.  The people who make this point, though, are not looking at the larger issue.  It is one thing for our government to pass legislation; the wider application of that legislation on our streets and at our doorsteps is another matter. 

Feinstein’s bill is unprecedented in the history of this country, and requires widespread enforcement in every town and hamlet in order to be effective.  The way in which it is designed makes a violent response from the public inevitable.  It reaches far beyond the Assault Weapons Ban of the 1990’s, calling for the creation of a massive database of almost all gun owners in the United States.  This database will require citizens to submit their EXISTING firearms to cataloging, and the owners to be filed and fingerprinted like criminals. 

The bill will ban the outright the sale, manufacture, and transfer of at least 120 models of firearms (which have not yet been named).  It will ban the manufacture and sale of most if not all semi-automatic rifles and the bill specifically targets handguns as well.  Large capacity mags and mag fed weapons will essentially disappear from gun stores.  Though, those guns designated as “hunting rifles” will be exempt (for now).

Feinstein has also openly agreed with NY Governor Andrew Cuomo that government buy back programs (forced selling of firearms at a reduced price) and even physical confiscations are on the table:

http://www.opposingviews.com/i/society/guns/new-york-governor-andrew-cuomo-says-gun-confiscation-could-be-option

http://washingtonexaminer.com/sen.-feinstein-suggests-national-buyback-of-guns/article/2516648

To put this bluntly, there are approximately 50 million gun owners (according to official estimates) in the United States.  If only 2% of those gun owners refuse to submit to the Feinstein Database, and the feds attempt confiscation, they will have a massive revolution on their hands.

Many Americans, including myself, will not be strolling into the local Fusion Center to register our weapons.  Why?  Because gun registration reeks of fascism!  Some might call this “cliche”, but let’s just examine the guidelines of the Nazi Gun Registration Program of 1938:

- Classified guns for "sporting purposes"

- All citizens who wished to purchase firearms had to register with the Nazi officials and have a background check.

- Presumed German citizens were hostile and thereby exempted Nazis from the gun control law (meaning officials could have guns, citizens could not).

- Gave Nazis unrestricted power to decide what kinds of firearms could, or could not be owned by private persons.

- The types of ammunition that were legal were subject to control by bureaucrats.

- Juveniles under 18 years could not buy firearms and ammunition.

You see, we’ve witnessed the Feinstein gun bill before, many times through history.  We know how it ends, so, there is very little incentive for us to go along quietly.

The database itself is truly the crux of it all.  It basically begs to be defied.  When a government has become openly hostile to common people, destructive of their economy, and oppressive of their individual rights, it only follows that gun registration will lead to outright confiscation later down the road or imprisonment for the owner.  Many Americans are simply not going to fall into the same trap that past societies have fallen into.  The eventual refusal of millions of citizens to voluntarily register will lead to a definite federal response. 

The Department Of Homeland Security has obviously taken this into account, at least partly, by stockpiling over 1.6 billion rounds of ammunition in the span of a year, most of which are used in weapons distributed by the government for domestic enforcement.  Their projected scenario, I believe, involves limited resistance from people like myself; “gun nuts” and “liberty freaks” who are on the “fringe” of the populous.  At least, that’s what the headlines will say.  In the end, who will care if a few “conspiracy theorists” take a bullet in the quest to end gun violence, right?  But then again…

What I see in America is a much harder stance against gun confiscation than at any time in recent memory, and far less compromising than in the 1990’s.  Gun grabbers are, in my view, walking into a hornets nest.  Most average firearms enthusiast may be less aware of the deeper problems at hand, but they know when they are about to be raped, and will react in kind.  We in the Liberty Movement are often accused of “radicalizing” people against government authority, but I have to say, if that is the case, then the Feds are doing a much better job than we ever could.

Simultaneously, the UN (which most gun owners despise) is helping matters along by using the recent Sandy Hook shooting as a springboard for a reintroduction of their failed international Small Arms Treaty:

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/12/28/un-arms-treaty-nra_n_2373417.html

"European and other U.N. delegates who support the arms trade treaty told Reuters on condition of anonymity they hoped Newtown would boost support for the convention in the United States, where gun control is an explosive political issue."

"Newtown has opened the debate within the United States on weapons controls in ways that it has not been opened in the past," Abramson said, adding that "the conversation within the U.S. will give the (Obama) administration more leeway."

The UN has always claimed that their small arms treaty would NOT restrict private gun ownership in the U.S., and that it only deals with the international trade of illicit arms.  Yet, they try to use gun control actions in the face of Sandy Hook as a rationale for reopening negotiations?  They can't have it both ways.  Either they are trying to tie the treaty to domestic gun ownership in the U.S, or they aren't.  Will our government sign on to an international agreement to restrict private gun ownership on top of Feinstein's gun grab bill?  

To put this in the most basic terms: registration and restriction equals revolution.  Count on it.  It is not a matter of what we "want", it is a matter of what is necessary.  Without a citizenry armed with weapons of military application, we lose our last deterrent to tyranny, and thus, we lose everything.  When backed into a corner, a victim has two options: he can lie down and die, or, he can fight regardless of the odds.  Sadly, this is where we are in America; fear, servitude, subservience, or civil war.

Let us hope our weapons are never needed --but do not forget what the common people knew when they demanded the Bill of Rights: An armed citizenry is the first defense, the best defense, and the final defense against tyranny. If guns are outlawed, only the government will have guns. Only the police, the secret police, the military, the hired servants of our rulers. Only the government -- and a few outlaws. I intend to be among the outlaws - Edward Abbey

I disagree with this one, especially if you're, um, well-stocked. Caching weapons can allow you get them on the other side of roadblocks, checkpoints, etc, without carrying it on you, or allow you to give someone a weapon without implicating yourself directly.

Considering the primary manual for weapons caching was written by/for army special forces, I think it's safe to say there's tactical merit to it.

Even outgoing Kucinich admits this is the wrong approach and that our societal problem of violence goes much deeper (near the end of the interview). You know something is deeply wrong when outgoing Kucinich and Ron Paul agree that the biggest threats to our "democracy are: The Wars, The War Machine, The Debt, The Debt Machine, The Drones, The Patriot Act, FISA, THe NSA and the Utah Database. Even Kucinich admits his own party sold this place (and this Constitution) out on the war and everything else for political advantage...

I don't know what you are talking about.  Gun owners are peaceful people, just don't push them around too much.  The inviolable rule of nature runs something like:  "You have to have teeth to survive." Lots of Austrians and Hungarians wished they had possessed those teeth while they were sitting in a muddy ditch awaiting their turn to be shot in the back of the head.

disgusting, imo

what I find appalling is this idea of taking on police records not only the names (debatable and applied in many countries) of people owning guns but also the fingerprints. This smacks of pre-judgment and disrespect for the citizen's dignity

all in all it fits with my theory that it's a cultural fight that is being waged - and a distracting one, too

Nobody really seemed to give a fuck, in fact.

 

Most of this country will stand up and chair if and when DHS is unleashed on the gun toting "patriots."

 

For fuck's sake, man, people voted for Obama because they think the government is and should be a perpetual lactating tit.

 

These people still think he's a "liberal" because he promised them free healthcare, totally oblivious to everything else he's done and his thralldom to big banks and AIPAC and big pharma.

 

Sarcasm and glibness aside - how the fuck do you not feel hopeless?? 

 

For me, Obama's seemingly inevitable caving in on appointing Chuck Hagel proves he's absolutely subject to the pro-Israel, pro-War, pro-Security State interests that are robbign and ass fucking this country as it votes more for American Idol than the Executive Branch puppet.

Rome and the Romans got F over and destroyed by their corrupt Senate and top leadership.   Sound familiar?   The Roman army was sent to hell holes to waste away - far from Rome because the Senate did not want the army around to protect the citizens from the corrupt SENATE.   I am not sure if the Roman Senate was as corrupt with lifetime seats like the U.S. Senate and corrupt Senators.   Getting an idea yet as to who the problem is?

Feinstein and her hubby have made hundreds of millions doing deals and selling out the USA to China.  The same China that came out for Americans to be disarmed.  IS she doing China's bidding?  The Senate.   Anyone remember the SKS rifle "buyback" in California?  Those rifles were "sold" to China and guess what - they were reimported back into the USA.  A California corporation was involved.  I think they were reimported on teh East Coast.   Neat trick - steal someone's guns illegally for peanuts, ship em out and resell them.  Her fingerprints were all over that deal.  The info may still be around on what happened.

The Senate and Senators.

Historical corrections: For its last 500 years or so Rome was ruled by its emperor. The Roman senate had no real power and existed to give the people comfort that the old ways were being upheld. Almost every time a Roman emperor died (or more often murdered), powerful regional generals would march their armies (the Danube legions, the German legions, the Syrian legions, etc.) back towards Rome to fight it out to decide who would be the next emperor.

So, there really isn't much correlation between what is happening at the moment in this country and what Rome was like in its last 500 years.

No, you are wrong.  The registration and fingerprinting provisions are the very bright red lines with this proposed bill along with taking away property by not allowing firearms to be transferred either before or after death.  So personal property rights are violated along with intrusive mandates that will make criminals of many, because I predict most will not comply.  

Then if they start attaching financial penalties for noncompliance, (which can not be easily proved), they will have a revolution on their hands.  And if they start kicking down doors, they will have a bloodbath, if not a Civil War.

"Arms" in this context were military arms not the personal weapons of private individuals. The context of "depriving of the whole nation of arms" was the refusal of the British to conscript Indians into the British Army during the First World War. Gandhi was an extreme anti-militarist. The statement is odd coming out of him, but he used the circumstance for political purposes to advance the cause of Home Rule and Independence.

We do not need a revolution but need to read the law.  The states are sovereign jurisdictions according to The Northwest Ordinance, which is part of the US code and is still in effect.  As a matter of fact, most states admission into the union was predicated on the fact that their state constitutions could not be repugnant to that ordinance.  Read the laws people, stop bitching.  Your ignorance is what rules you.

Secondly, they are to uphold and protect the Constitution, when was the last time any of them did that? {especially the foreign AND DOMESTIC part}. They are carefully vetted, and all the loyal, patriotic  types never are promoted to join the general corps.

Unfortunately, the Heller decision leaves open the question of what types of guns our Second Amendment rights hinge on (e.g. a sawed off shotgun is properly excluded.)

So you call the people who want to ban AR15s, Bushmasters and the like, huge capacity ammo clips "gun grabbers"?  Sure, after they are off the streets that only leaves us with 250 million guns.  Gun control indeed.  Why do the gun nuts quickly conflate the arguement?  A ban on military-style assault weapons is somehow the same thing as taking your guns away.  I've heard 5-year olds make better arguements.

Gun grabbers or gun nuts, I don't much care for either of them.

Yes, "gun grabbers" is too Disney for me too.  I prefer the actual term "Facist" as more approximate to the intent.  And vice "gun nuts", the actual term is "Cassandra."  You know, the person who sees the future but cannot convince those she loves of that future. 

You really think this ends with semi-automatic carbines?  There is most assuredly a master vision to disarm those rascally Americans to pave the road to the NWO for the self-styled elites who believe Plato's Republic describes their place in the new society.  That is, the elites and their usefull idiots see themselves as the philosopher-kings and guardians (all the NWO is is a retread of Plato's Republic).  The "assault weapons" are just the low-hanging fruit to set the stage.  The extensive database is the real goal.  For this, the New York Journal that published the database for legal gunowners showed the real end-game.  Once you know where the weapons are, of any type and caliber, you can go after them as vulnerable individuals.  You think those 1.6 million .40 caliber hollow points that DHS and other agencies purchased are for training??????

The constitution is crystal clear on the purpose of the 2d amendment, to maintain a "militia," I.e., an armed citizenry. It doesn't take much further research into what the founders said about the 2d amendment to know it was quite literally to ensure the ppl were as well armed as the state to ensure a final check thereon.

The public must be allowed to own anything the military can field, including tanks and nukes. Otherwise the 2d amendment's purpose is vitiated.

MrB, 

This is a stealth Ex Post Facto law, criminalizing my legal possession unless I take active steps that include FINGERPRINTING, (like a common criminal).   It takes away my property rights by not allowing transfer of my firearm, (even after my death).  Property rights are the basis of all of our other rights.  Feinstein has stated in the past that she would like to ban ALL guns.  This is just the first step.

You are a fool who does not deserve what Liberty you have left, (assuming that you are from the United States and not butting in where you do not belong.  This is OUR business, not the world's).

Oh the irony of the left.  Check out this video of a gun store's perspective on the proposed ban on AR 15's and so on.  In particular, pay attention around the 2:26 mark.  Its awesome!!!

There is an alternative to the cold dead hands camp

8 inch pvc pipe with end caps. Epoxy glue. metalized plastic bags with commercial sealer. Put everything in metalized plastic bag with h20 absorption pack. For metal parts covered in cosmoline skip h20 absorbers.

Use lots of cosmoline for metal parts. Not too heavy on the plastic or wood parts

Seal end caps with epoxy. Allow to dry a couple of days. Paint epoxy on the ends and lay down strips of duct tape.

Then protect the whole thing with another coat of epoxy over the entire tube. Download an owners manual for ur type of gun and place it inside too.

Keep some papers around to identify burial location. Make sure the papers are passed on at your death to trusted others who will do the same.

Bury brass, primers, ball, and powder separately in metalized plastic inside number 10 cans. Reloading equipment too. A simple, cheap handheld single reloading tool with a die for your caliber can produce an amazing amount of ammo if run 24 hours per day.

If powder and primers are stored with H2o absorbers and oxygen absorbers they will be just as reliable 50 years from now.

A number 10 can sealer is 800 bucks

Another thing to do is bury some junk metal, e.g. old car parts etc.   If anyone wants to try metal detection, keep them busy.

Any small pieces of metal junk.

Metal waste from a machine shop

Leave out a car on blocks and an old nasty refrigerator. They will think all the metal junk three inches below ground is just signs of trailer trash living.

Conax,  I have already told my congressmen not to fall for this ploy and to not cave in any respect in regards to the imposition of new firearm or magazine restrictions.  I made clear that they would not get my vote next election, if they gave ANY ground.  

We do not want to be nibbled to death either.  Too much has occurred already over the last 12 years.  We have already been pushed too far.  Now is the time to push back HARD.

"Your congressmen?"

Pal, you're already fuckin' dead, you just don't know it yet.

Instead of "pushing back" (which is what they want, as it supports the beast called Divide and Conquer), you need to learn to walk away, and let it die on it's own.

"Your" government was murdered on 12/23/1910, and was replaced in a silent coup. Anything you do to further support the criminals in its place is nothing but treason to the Constitution you allege to support.

Voting for evil, is pure evil personified by your own actions. Yet you complain about their behavior?????

Give me a fucking break.

we sure do live in awkward times. I'm not american, i live in a european country where noone's allowed to have gun (except for hunting and target practice) but i'm a lawyer an even if it does cause some arm i believe the constitution should stay intact as it is what USA where build on. A government that changes it changes the rules that runs him. I also firmly do believe that if a gun control has to be put in place, those incertain times are certainly not the ones where this debate should be held.

be brave america and remember that the truth or what is right is not always what you're told it is, stuggle for your freedom which is much more than the 2nd amendment

Those who believe in the Constitution will prevail in the end. It will be a bloody road we will have to go down, but Winston Churchill got it right.

TPTB are beginning to overreach. In the 90s they might have gotten away with this, with so many getting so much from the status quo. But as the bankrupt status quo's ability to buy ppl off dwindles, their continuing encroachment on our liberties threatens to set off the spark.

I'm ready to lay down my life for liberty. Are you?

They are getting desparate because the empire is ending.  100 people in the Senate make the laws that enslave 300+ million people.   The public may get a clue soon.  

15 million guns sales per year over the past 4 years (60 million new guns) makes me think people are starting to pay attention.

I would love to have some of the Founding Fathers (Washington, Jefferson, and say, Franklin) appear and tell us EXACTLY what they meant by the 2nd amendment.

I'd be willingto bet whatever they said:

 - We meant unlimted gun ownership for all citizens, or, 

 - We meant only guns for organized, government sponsored militias

The current side they blew out of the water regarding guns would tell the Founding Fathers to shove it.

Wanna bet?

But it is not clear as to who will do the overthrowing:  an organized militia....or individuals.

The concept of our republic is that the individual citizen is free to choose any course of action that doesn't violate another's life, liberty, or pursuit of happiness.  Self-defense isn't open for debate as national policy; restricting gun ownership (and frankly 1000 other activities already restricted) requires the threat of force, at gunpoint, and contradicts the concept of being innocent until proven guilty.  

You can't expect to be taken seriously if you condone murder and imprisonment in order to punish an act that you fear another man MAY commit.  It's akin to executing people are bigger and stronger then you or who are intelligent enough to build bombs if they were so inclined.  

Freedom has always had a direct correlation with an armed society because guns create a level playing field on which all (law-abiding) citizens have the ability to protect their families, property, and country without depending on others.  Self-defense is a natural right and would remain so regardless of what a group of politicians on your television claim.  

All you have to understand in order to clearly identify the divide among people on this issue is whether or not they feel personal responsibility for their own well-being; those who do not would feel safer if other people, which they identify as threats, were unarmed and ultimately if those other people didn't exist at all which is obviously the most effective way on ensuring their goal of personal safety.
