Joe is one of the moderates who would give him the choice of being disarmed.
I, on the other hand, would strip him of his right to vote for not meeting his militia duties. And make him get a permit to NOT carry, and put him in a public database to shame him for his moral cowardice.
And make him pay double sales tax to fund the additional police protection he requires.

[Kristophr is right. I’ve gotten soft in my old age. In the past I have advocated for the Swiss system where you cannot vote unless you periodical qualify on the rifle range. Assuming someone does not point out a constitutionality problem that I have overlooked I have no serious objections to implementing a system such as advocated by Kristophr.
I’m currently reading Lone Star Planet and expect to get some ideas from the book. Perhaps that will help me regain my edge.
Thank you Kristophr for pointing out how soft I am. I’ll try to maintain a sharper edge in the future.—Joe]
