Ukraine gave up their nukes in exchange for promises of security.
We see how that turned out.
This is why we must NEVER give up our guns to any government.

[This makes perfect sense to me. The principles which apply at a national level make sense when scaled down to an individual level.
But yet some people seem to think it is total nonsense. And they don’t (or can’t) explain why it is nonsense in a way that makes sense to me:
Oh my God, how are you not getting this? Two totally separate things. It’s like comparing apples to a dragon.
Does that mean we’re all getting nukes? We can pile them on a bookshelf behind us in Zoom conferences. Pose with them in Christmas photos. Have shirts that say, “Over my radioactive body.”
Comparing rifles to nukes is an extreme comparison considering that fact individuals can’t just walk into their local Walmart or bass pro shop and purchase a nuclear weapon.
Excellent argument for a 5th grader.
One screen. Two movies. Each think the other is delusional.
Reality is tough. Really, really tough.—Joe]
