Our guns, ourselves: Polarizing policy fights about firearms don't tell the whole story

Bill Van Slyke at New York Daily News - a reasonable view of the gun control "debate". [scopeny]

The household gun to many represents a last reserve of trust that should never be granted to government or authority; the last line of defense from tyranny and abuse.

That's why, to many, the idea of eliminating the household gun would be tantamount to collectively and completely denuding ourselves before the altar of government and saying: "We trust you completely. You can have all the power."

Is it really so hard to imagine why a person would be opposed to that?
