It just seems to me

that when really contemplating what makes people free and able of self governance, that you must consider the right to keep and bear arms as the core tool to promote equality and limit oppression from the state. England does have a low gun death rate but their violent crime rate tops the board. After Australia's gun ban violent crime skyrocketed, including a 30% jump in rapes. The physically strong prey more easily on the weak. Ron Paul repeats a Robert A. Heinlein quote all the time: "An armed society is a polite society." I tend to agree with this quote and have come to realize that those that would do you harm have the most to gain by disarming you. With this belief in mind, I will be at the frontline opposing any attempt to restrict the right of people to adequately defend themselves.

I guess I'm not alone
