This was certainly true in Europe a few decades ago:
Is it true at on this continent at this time? Maybe not. But if we decide it isn’t true, act accordingly, we are making that choice for not only ourselves but all of our descendants and probably for all time. If that is the wrong choice we won’t get to change our response.
The risk far too great to take the chance. Do not give up another inch of our right to keep and bear arms.
