This is an oversimplification. The far left loves for you to make oversimplifications. It makes the job of tyranny easy.
The most sovereign country in the world? Switzerland. Everyone is armed. World War II, Hitler was told that they all had guns and knew how to use them. Between that and the Swiss Alps, he said "**** it" and invased Belgium and France instead.
Speaking of Hitler, guess what happened prior to the Nazi SS taking over? Yup, massive gun control campaign.
Btw, these events? They are staged violence. By that, I don't mean people don't die. They're people the narrative wants to die in states resistant to disarming the public. Big scene about shootings in Las Vegas (btw, country music concert... wild guess as to what political group got shot). Or in states that gun freedom still exists, they widely publicize this stuff.
But here's why it's an oversimplification. In Chicago, NYC, LA, SF, Seattle, way more gun violence but these places have largely banned guns. What's happening?!?
Simple. Criminals don't obey laws. Lemme say this again so it sinks in.
Criminals don't obey laws. I know, shocking, right?
When you introduce tough gun restrictions, you provide incentive to arrest people who only carry guns within their property (i.e. criminalize self-defense). Nevermind that sometimes you get shot in the street or when headed to a liquor store, these people mainly only carry guns inside their homes. In fact, some of these states, in order not to be charged with a crime, there has to be evidence that you tried to run (by that point, you're dead, and the guy took your property and raped your wife).
Meanwhile, criminals don't care about such laws, they'll shoot and rob , and so on. This was the Nazi SS too, only one with guns so they took over. Which brings us to another problem. Government killing ppl.
So in answer to your question... **** you and your outrage, we need even stronger gun rights. If I can walk around town with my rifle on my back, nobody will mess with me (not that I would, I prefer swords).
