Probably because we the people, here or in Canada, outnumber our governor's.I think that the school, church, etc shootings show that there is MORE of a need for individuals to carry any kind of weapon...to stop evil if need be. Gun rights should be hailed all the more. I keep hearing stories of individual gun carriers stopping crimes. Nothing wrong with stopping evil. The school, church, etc shooters were stopped with guns. Guns stop evil also. Why cant the govt see the positive side to gun use?
Even the military and police, part of the Executive branch of government in America, are members of our communities.
It's one thing to police and enact law and civil order in uniform. It would be quite another if there came a day when police or military were ordered to take family and friends into custody under orders by a police state action.
Because in the event of full on revolt by police and domestic military personnel, including Capital police, that then leaves the unarmed governor's all to themselves. With little if any armed security.
See that's the thing. While any government threatens to or does disarm the majority population of weapons we're able to access/buy legally, their armed services are armed to the teeth. And have a national and local arsenal that farrrrr surpass anything the civilian block is able to obtain.
That's how we guarantee our inalienable right to liberty and freedom. While not as lethally stocked as our governments, at least armed well enough to make them think twice if they want to turn our respective country's into a full on dictatorship.
