Considering the perceptions of men - fairly accurate.

E Archer, NYC

Most often, when guns are used for self-defense, they are not even fired. Just the presence of arms for defense is enough to discourage the invader and plunderer. If the people were completely disarmed, who knows what attempts will be made on our lives, labors, and property in the name of our security. Government parasites work tirelessly to legislate our powers away.

Tyrants always first disarm the citizens.

Fredrick William Sillik, Anytown

Firearms are the unmistakable identifying implementation of the oppressive invader and plunderer. Ideas of love, kindness, equality are the implementation of the individuals interested in civilized order.
