at least to the government, is the fact that there is no way in hell they have any type of clue about how many weapons we possess. I recall an incident back in my youth when my wife and I got into a domestic incident where the police were called. I was outside waiting for them when they arrived. I knew the officers who took me to the nearest watering hole and dropped me off. A few weeks later I was having a drink in the same place and sitting next to one of the cops who had taken me there. He told me they were very happy to see me outside when they arrived. I asked him what he meant and he responded "We know what type of weaponry you have in your house". I asked him how he knew that and his answer was through gun purchase records from local shops. You should have seen his face when I responded "Oh, thats all you know about"?
There are no politicians or bankers in foxholes.
