When there is trouble. call 911. Then wait, wait, wait......
One of the safest, least violent countries in the world is Switzerland, where there is a gun in almost every household. When a young man is discharged from his compulsory military service, he takes his gun home and is required to keep it in shooting condition. Hitler did not invade them during the 1940’s. Also, in 1940, one of the Japanese Generals discouraged an invasion of California, saying there would be an American behind every blade of grass with a gun.
They do have strict gun regulations in Switzerland, but a citizen is allowed to buy a handgun or even a machine gun.
Any time any leader of a country says he wants gun control, what he really means is he wants control of the people. When they have no defense, there is no liberty. That is how countries are taken over from within.
99.9% of the U.S. population that own guns of any type are honest, law-abiding citizens. In many situations, a gun may be a life saver. Guns don’t kill people. People kill people with any weapon that may be available.
To quote Thomas Jefferson: ”Those who hammer their guns into plows will plow for those who do not…”
