So just because you think that failure is what is to become of yourself, then we all must choose failure. That is just exactly what tyrants want you to think; they need your support against the rice farmers in Asian, the sheep herders in the Middle East, but when you think that you, a well educated man from a first world nation think that maybe the men in power are taking advantage of me and my countrymen, maybe they want to harm us for self gain, maybe they want to use the system to enslave me, then that is when they punish you. You have fallen into the mindset they need you to be in. If anything is to happen, which I doubt, however if on the off chance something does happen do you want to tell your children you gave your gun to them, or do you want your child to know your fought for liberty and freedom. I’ll leave off with a quote I find relates to the topic.
“Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.”
