    Discipline and order? That's what you call the government and thugs having all the guns while the average Joe has a baseball bat? What does neutering the average citizen's protective power have anything to do with discipline and order? Will you be conducting mandatory formations and training in order to instill discipline?
    You have quite an imagination. You should be a paperback writer.

    And you seem to not understand the definition of discipline.

    It's another of those cases where you have to trust bureaucracies to determine who's sane. What could go wrong? Everything, of course. I know lots of allegedely sane individuals who should not be allowed a gun. They really want an excuse to shoot somebody so they can be a "tough guy." There are some mental issues that are a little difficult to define, and some insecurities and inadequacies, an inferiority complex for example, that carrying a gun cures. That's not good. I personally believe that the lack of adequate discipline in schools has raised a group of citizens that think they can do anything, and sometimes do.

    Oh cool! Did they take your guns away to instill discipline or was it something else?

    The guns were secured in the armory when not needed, per my orders.

    LOL, and that's what instilled discipline? They were a bunch of rowdy individuals until you locked up the guns, at which point they straightened up and became soldiers? Is that really what you picture happening in the US?

    We will need another 50 years of quality, thorough education(includes Bible study) for this to come to pass. The first step may have been taken....49 to go.
