Gun control, like drug, liquor, guns, porn, sex, speech, smoking, selling on Sunday, spitting, driving, building, whatever you can think of control is always about control!slabertooch said:I was watching Man, Moment, Machine last night on the Discovery channel, gun control goes further back than I thought. The Catholic Church in France instituted gun control laws that disarmed the Hugenots (protestant). The Law stated that no common man could posses a self-striking firearm, only the nobility could. The purpose was to ensure that the common man would not rise up against the indiscretions of the nobility and the church.
Controlling the actions of others is far more important than whatever it's supposed to be controlling. It's a power, ego and control trip for those who can impose their own brand of morality on everyone else.
