#4 But was it voluntary? Did the gov't get to pick who would be allowed to defend themselves?
That's the only way that this could go down that even has half a chance of passing muster with the Michael Bloombergs and Diane Feinsteins of this world.

#5 "They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety" Ben Franklin. One of the problems that seems to get ignored is that you can never prevent every eventuality. There are too many people that really believe that the gov't can and should solve or prevent all problems and this simply just can not and should not be so. First of all it is not possible and secondly, under our Constitution, it is not the government's place.
