Re: Here is why banning guns wont work
Really, you don't see a difference between a gun ban and other laws? Would this law that you would vote for equally apply to government? Or do you fundamentally hold that we should live by double standards; that equal protection under the law only applies to the little people and explicitly NOT to the government elite?
