Gun control would be the worst thing for the US since the Civil War.
Consider this, if not for a armed US citizenry, we would be all speaking Japanese now. During World War II, Japan was going to invade the US. One of their admirals mentioned to the Emperor that “there would be a rifle behind every bland of grass”. That was sufficient to cancel the invasion.
Remember, a armed people are a free people. This was why the founding fathers mad it clear by adding the second amendment to the US constitution. People should not be afraid of the government, the government should be afraid of the people. If the German people had been armed, there would have been no Hitler.
Why is it that Obama wants the people to be disarmed? Think about it.
