If this is the law of the land...why in a republic (little r) and as republicans, do we allow mere POLITICIANS to the right to use a "title of office" for the rest of their lives as if it were de facto a patent of nobility. Because, as republicans, this should NOT be the case...just saying...

Switzerland is Free Because of Guns

This is something we should do as well.  Every adult who hasn't been convicted of either a violent or sex crime, is psychologically unfit, should be issued an M16 as well as a M1911A1 pistol.  I suspect that if we were to do this, and teach firearms safety and training in our elementary through high schools, we'd have far, far less crime than is the current case.  After all, a burgalar would be far more hesitant to break into a home if he KNEW that occupants were both armed and capable of using those weapons.

This would also have the additional benefit of rendering moot all arguments on the 2nd Amendment as well.  Requiring all adults, above the age of 18 (with the above exceptions) to keep and bare arm would have a positive effect on accountability of government.  That's the main reason why the founders had the 2nd Amendment in the first place. 

Also, rioting, such as the recent riots in the United Kingdom wouldn't happen...after all, every shop keeper, and worker, for that matter, would have access to firearms, as well as the training  to use them to defend their businesses, as well as their homes.
