i say let's impose a penalty, and a harsh one, for anyone who is not a criminal for NOT having a gun ready for self defense. charge say, a thousand dollars a person, unless they file with the local government for a permit NOT to be armed. that way, we can know who is not armed,and we can notify the criminals accordingly.
it's safer for the citizens, and it's safer for the criminals. it's a WIN/WIN situation.
and i'd like to see where crazy EVER said he wanted to disarm everyone, just the governor's bodyguards to give her a taste of her own gun control medicine.
