If we are going to be mature and streetwise about current events the most relevant question that needs to be asked is not about guns or no guns, gun laws or no guns laws, but this: why do those who control the American government want to disarm Americans now of the very weapons that would be in any way effective in resisting a military coup by the fascist-controlled American government?
And another: why at the same time that this is happening is state of the art weaponry and technology, including tanks, being transferred in vast quantities by the Pentagon from the military to the American police? And another: why is Homeland Security buying 1.6 billion rounds of ammunition to be used within the United States?
All this in the very period that the hysteria has been engineered and generated to remove from Americans weapons with any chance of resisting a police/military takeover by their own government which has long been planned and detailed in my books.
Answer those questions (and they have the same answer) and you will be home and dry in terms of understanding what we are looking at here. I and others have been warning about this for a long time and it is the unfolding of a plan going back many decades to disarm Americans and then unleash the crazies in uniform on a helpless population.
