The real issue involving

In my opinion, the argument about gun control, or any kind of 'control' for that matter, is merely a litmus test that We, the citizens of the USA, are subjecting ourselves to, in order to answer the following question: Do We want a government of the People, by the People and for the People, or do We want a government of the Government, by the Government and for the Government?

Putting it a bit more bluntly, should the People rule the government or will the Government rule the People? It scares me that there are a lot of otherwise intelligent Americans who can't see the consequences of government rule.

Jefferson said, "When the People fear the government, there is tyranny; when the government fears the people, there is liberty". This is the essence of what our founding fathers wanted for the United States of America (IMHO).

God Bless America, and Power to the People.

A disarmed populace is easier to control and tyranize.
