Gun control seen as a prerequisite to genocide

The problem with gun control is that people do not consider the downside.

In the last century, more than 100 million people were murdered by their own governments after having first been lawfully disarmed. The simple fact is that you cannot murder people in large groups when they have the means to fight back.

Gun control does not cause genocide. It is a necessary prerequisite. I hope our Legislature will consider these facts before taking up more gun control measures.
