Civilization and the rule of law as well as rational thought are an illusion. Let our tidy creation begin to erode (katrina and to a lesser extent Sandy) and the true nature of humanitity shows its face.That is not paranoia that it reality.Look around the globe and see humanity rearing its true nature. I see no reason to leave myself at a disadvantge by allowing government and well meaning but misguided people disarm me.<quoted text>
So just like RR you too consider that everyone should and does think exactly as you do. Perhaps you have not noticed that our past disagreements disprove that childish notion.
Most people are fine, civilised and have no though of wanting to see children murdered. However, as recent events show, there are individuals who are sick in the head for one reason or another and you have no control over who that individual is or what they will do yet you consider it perfectly fine to arm then.
It seems to me that gun owners in the US (and elsewhere) are perfectly willing to accept those consequences and yet a considerable number would balk and object (often violently) to abortion.
Smacks to me of double standards.
Survival= Barbarism when necessary.The first to fall? Those who consider themselves "civilized".
