Don't you recognize a joke when you read one? The goal of zero tolerances on guns is people control. There is nothing wrong with play cops and robbers or cowboys and Indians.
You do know our Revolutionary War was won by only 5% of our population, don't you? About 10% were Loyalists to the Crown and most of the rest were neutral. Many were neutral because of fear of reprisals. But in the end, the 5% carried the day.
And about 10% of our population left the U.S. to places like Canada, England, etc. Yep, if it were not for the 5% who were willing to bear arms, there never would have been an America. The best country in the world.
2. So, what you are telling me is that the minority imposed its will on the majority by brute force, thanks to firearms? Really? So the American revolution was a sham, a trick, UNWANTED independence from the UK staged by a minority that was armed to the teeth? Well, well. Then, by your own admission, wouldn't you say that guns are certainly not a good thing, used only for illegal moves and to thwart the will of the majority?;
3. "there never would have been an America?" Really? I'm forced to conclude that without arms, there would have been no revolution, and therefore no "America"? You mean to say that today, in 2013, had there been no revolution, the US would STILL be a colony of Britain? Want to think that one over, Rogue?;
4. Figure this one out : Canada, NZ, Australia, to name 3 bona fide countries, never waged a revolution, never rose against their masters, the British, with or without arms. Do you believe that those three countries, and so many others like them, are still colonies and not independent, on their own, today?
