Dominoes in Guns – Letter to the Editor

Gun owners say that if society takes away their AR-15 style automatic weapons, next comes rifles, handguns, knives, and finally every last sling shot and peashooter in America. I have read some history, and I find 2nd Amendment type societies where every household was encouraged to have a sword or a musket at the ready. But never have I discovered a society where every household was allowed to have a loaded cannon in the bedroom. Using the domino logic of gun owners, we would never want to prevent or disarm any nation’s nuclear arsenal, because that would inevitably be followed by us taking away all remaining means of defense from them. Maybe sane people just don’t want unstable leaders like the ones in Iran to have their fingers on a nuclear trigger. That would be like average, flighty Americans having access to assault weapons, not too smart.
