    There were some, even our president, who thought that the harsh conditions of 1913 might lead to future problems.
    As for the USA, there are so many weapons already in the hands of our citizens that I think it very unlikely that the govt can get them all back.
    And our military isn't as likely to go along with firing on its own citizens. They would be more likely to shoot their own officers...

    good job.

    Whenever I think about switchblade knives, I never imagine the chain of connection to the hydrogen bomb.

    After they outlaw the knives, they're going after the pointy stick people.

    man, just yesterday my 6 year old grandson made a bow and arrow out of willow branches and yarn, and first thing he did was shoot his older sister in the chin....
    and no, we didn't confiscate his weapons, but he did have to apologize and promise to be more careful where he pointed it...

    Germany was peaceful and prosperous in 1913.
    The point is that no one saw the things that would lead to the conditions that allowed the creation of Germany of 1933 -- that is, lots of things can happen to completely change the eco-social-political lanscape, making possible things that no one could dream of.

    And so, the fact that the US government hasn't done X doesnt mean that it will never do X.

    As for the USA, there are so many weapons already in the hands of our citizens that I think it very unlikely that the govt can get them all back.

    I can agree with that.

    Well, you're kinda anti-knife, so I'll guess...fork and spoon, or maybe two sporks.

    But what was he aiming at?

    (Rooster Cogburn giving a description of the bad guy..."...blond hair, and has a bullet wound on his upper lip."

    "His upper lip, what were you aiming for?"

    "His lower lip.")

    aim? he was unlikely to hit something he was aiming for....

    Nope.

    Well, there was the Waco, Texas massacre of the Branch Davidians by the Jiggly Attorney General under Clinton.
