Anti-guns people: "Get rid of guns. Stop the death and destruction!" Pro-guns people: "No, we need guns or there will be death and destruction."

Which do you choose? You're an alien and there's a war. No bystanders.

Death and destruction exists, not because guns exist, but because people exist. If guns cause violence, then violence must not have existed before the 1500's.

Imbalance of power enables violence. Privately owned firearms neutralizes power imbalance.

-- Frederic Bastiat
