I'm sure the Jews from WW2 Germany would agree... or the Chinese under Mao... or the Russians under Stalin... oh wait. They're dead because their governments killed them. If only their constitution had allowed them guns to defend themselves and their families.
Let's be fair, even if they had guns they probably wouldn't have used them. Their lives probably didn't mean that much to them anyway.
Or maybe they did want to live, to protect their families. But they were unable to do so because they were rendered defenseless?
Just an idea.
