End of story? I think not.

You do indeed think not. If you thought about it you'd quickly realize why it is required that the people be as well armed as the government in order for the nation to truly be free.

This isn't some radical concept... it's been one of the foundations of Western Civilization since the dawn of Western Civilization. We haven't progressed past "might makes right", we never can. It's a universal truth of life. Why you want to empower the government more than the people is a mystery to me... if you had ever studied history you'd see that it never turns out well for the people when that happens.

How do you expect to defend any of your rights if you give all the power to the government? What makes you think they'll be magnanimous forevermore? What makes you think they've ever really been so for that matter? You weren't enamoured with Bush from what I recall, do you think no Republican will ever be elected President again? Do you value your freedom so little that you'd cede it for nothing in return? You wouldn't be more safe if only the government had guns nor even if guns were to magically cease to exist tomorrow, of that there is no doubt.
