In all the talk about gun control …. I never hear them talk about taking guns away from criminals; just from law-abiding citizens.

[There are several reasons for this:
- Criminals are their natural allies. Violent crime makes people inclined to seek help from the government. This increases the power of politicians.
- Taking guns from people who are strongly inclined to follow the law is far less risky than taking them from violent criminals who require firearms in their “profession”.
- Control. The populous will be more docile without firearms. Political power flows from the barrel of a gun.
Never give up your guns. The criminals who want them will respect you even less if you surrender to them.—Joe]
