So this is about People Control, not Gun Control.
How bout Representative, Presidential, and Judicial Control??? We've seen that they cannot Control Themselves, they ignore the US Constitution at all costs, so they feel compelled to Control others who they feel can't Control themselves either, at all costs, save their own Accountability.
Perhaps if they were good Stewards of their Offices and stayed within the Scope of their Authority (same as every other Citizen's) then the People would have an easier time Controlling themselves.
When the physical or mental restraint of others becomes the norm for a 'Civil' Society, expect that Society to become most Uncivilized.
For thousands of years Self Restraint was the norm for a harmonious society.
