How could anyone think that GC is a good thing? When the government has the ability to strip you of your right to protect yourself and say that its for the better good of yourself and others there are 2 imediate problems that come to mind, 1: if your family is being threatened by an intruder why should the well being of your family be put at risk? No one should have to wait for higher athorities to come and protect you! Also the thought of being controlled by the tyranny that has followed gun controlled country's leaders is something to think about, Take the axis powers in WW2. The Axis powers of Germany controlled by Adolf Hitler, Italy controlled by Benito Mussolini and Japan controlled by Hirohito were all stricken of their ability to protect themselves. And look where those countries ended, all will live in infamy because the government gained to much power and there was non resistance to keep them in check. I rest my case.
