The True Story Of Gun Control. Governments fear the people and they want you unarmed. They do not want the people to have any means to defend themselves or others. The state cannot guarantee your safety, and they wont. Oppressive States always have gun bans and treat the people as sheep. The oppressing comes in many forms. Once you give up your right to defend yourself, all states have proven they can do what they want to you and make laws the people do not want. We have witnesses many protests over the last few years, of course those in power do not want you to have guns, after all they want power. Those very same politicians who want gun bans have concealed carry licenses and armed body guards. Why should they have these special rights?
