Comment: Seriously?

(See in situ)


Seriously?

Okay... but you really think owning guns would have stopped this from happening? The belief gun ownership would have changed this story in any way whatsoever (other than turning it into a bloody civilian massacre) seems incredibly naive, if not just insulting to our intelligence.

Gun ownership in America wouldn't change the story for us either. If the government wants anything here - the last thing they'd fear would be civilians with guns. The notion that civilians will stand outside their homes with machine guns against the full force of the US military, or even a small armored police force, is utterly delusional. Citizen run state militias have been completely eliminated in this country. Without a well organized militia, no amount of individual gun ownership is going to save you from Uncle Sam. Sorry.
