Individual Gun ownership in the United States for personal protection should be considered a social and personal behavioral disorder. Nowhere in History in any serious social discourse are individual weapons for personal protection given any credence for the social organization of a particular group of people. In fact, they are scorned upon as a reflection of something out of the normal, as uncivil, as a sign of chaos, as non-conformity and a general lack of a rational social organization.
Your fear of inanimate objects should be considered a social and personal behavior disorder. You fail to conform to social norms of the United States where millions of people own firearms and the vast majority support the right to keep and bear arms.

In the modern society people go about their tasks without any concern for their general welfare, like someone doing them bodily harm or any other threatening behavior. In a modern society people should feel safe and their well being insured by the social principles that govern each and every individual in this social situation.
You are sounding more and more like a helpless subject of the government. You would be incapable of taking care of yourself even if your communist government allowed you to do so.

It’s easy to translate the advanced social behavioral diseases that manifest themselves from the lack of social norms to the Psychosis of the individual to the overall behavior of society in general. An example of psychotic behavior is where an individual has a firearm in their possession for “protection,” this firearm is more likely to kill a family member than someone who may be a threatening force to the person, something the Gun Lobbyists don’t like to talk about.
What a pile of nonsense. If firearms are not useful for protection than why does your government need them? Firearms are used for personal defense approximately 2.5 million times a year. There are only 600 accidental firearm deaths a year in the United States. It is a lie to say that a firearm is more likely to kill a family member than to be use for protection.

Individual Gun Ownership is only a symptom of something seriously wrong with the general overall social thinking. The key is why do people act why they do act? Are the leaders facing the social situation squarely? Is the philosophy for governing sound? Do we know where the future lies, in the sense where do we go from here, as a society? Is there Democracy, so individual guns are unnecessary? In China we’ve seen what’s happening in the United States many, many times in our history. In a directionless social philosophy that doesn’t work anymore and an old ossified leadership whose only interest is to cling to power, even as the social manifestations all point to the future as a general decline into a chaotic social situation, the answer is not in individual protection but as a general social recognition of contradictions that manifest themselves into an unsocial and uncivil behavioral situation.. That is the answer.
You are a lunatic. You would rather live as a slave under your government’s thumb than as a free man? Individual gun ownership is the remedy to thwart oppressive government.

As Thomas Jefferson said,“When the government fears the people, there is liberty. When the people fear the government, there is tyranny.”

I will not live as a slave. Keep your communism!
