Quote of the day–James Bovard

The question is not whether America would be a better country if fewer people owned guns but whether government seizures of some private guns will make people more safe.  Given the fact that the government can neither successfully ban guns nor defend American citizens, does the government have the moral right to attempt to selectively seize guns from law-abiding citizens?
