government is most certainly necessary, if we did not have a government who would keep control of people. government keeps everyone in a line and if someone steps out of line the government fixes it. if government didn't exist anyone could do anything they wanted and there would be absolutely no control.

who cares, let people fend for themselves just like the old days, the government these days is to harsh. It is making everyone soft and can't live without depending on others. we should just live off the land like the good ole days.

ok if there wasn't a government who would stop someone from walking up to you and your land and saying if you don't run along I am going to kill you. there would be no one to tell that guy and his group that he cant take it from you.

my answer is simple, my gun to his head with probably change his mind, therefore I would be the one taking land from others.. BOOM!

ever sense 1783 there has been a government that gives you rights such as the second amendment that allows you to bear arms. without the government that second amendment goes away and you no longer have your gun or any bullets to put in it.

1783 my butt crack , in 1640 the first gun was made and no one could take it away , we were our own authority and without the government it isn't against the law to have the gun, and if someone wants to try go ahead if you want some lead in you. plus you don't need the government to make a gun

the first gun made in 1640 but there is evidence of slavery over 11000 years ago in the Neolithic revolution. so you wouldn't have a gun because the power house slave owners would have you working their fields picking cotton whipping you across the back every time you thought you needed to catch your breather
