Notice the choice of words

"Doesn’t it sound logical? Doesn’t it sound safe?"

That'd be the gun-free society that the Washington Post's Fred Hiatt desires.

Wouldn’t it make sense to learn from other developed nations, which believe that only the military and law enforcers, when necessary, should be armed ...?

Indeed. After Black Lives Matter protests about police brutality, a federal government that sics the IRS on people/groups it doesn't like, a Secret Service who divulges private information on a political opponent ... yes, by all means, let's only allow the government to possess guns.

There has to be a cultural shift. Only then will Congress and the Supreme Court follow.

The Supreme Court, which has misread the Second Amendment in its recent decisions, would have to revisit the issue. The court has corrected itself before, and if public opinion shifts it could correct itself again.

No, the SCOTUS got it exactly right. But those who want to ignore history and intent will always do so for political gain.

But Hiatt is correct in that it will take the SCOTUS to enable gun confiscation. At least in the short term. We're only one justice away from it. Repealing the 2nd Amendment is a cumbersome process and it will be quite some time, if ever, for the political will to allow it.

If the SCOTUS does dare to overturn its fairly recent decisions affirming an individual's right to own a gun, you may see civil disobedience unlike that since the Revolution.

If SCOTUS somehow rules against citizen gun ownership The Whiskey Rebellion will look like a school yard fight

What's the guarantee that guns will be kept out of the hands of those with a nervous disposition?

Appropriately tickets or points over your document, you may finish up paying out a great deal more for insurance coverage than you'd so long as you waited until eventually these would be absent. Or, it is possible to buy the beginnings of a Japanese bonsai maple tree. A water motor design named hilbow hp 80 has been made which has all the characteristics, which are missing in other engines that are installed on commercial angles.Within the Melbourne shoot, gown designer Alex Perry replaces Henry Roth as mentor for the designers and Gale, style designer Kirrily Johnston and market professional Jarrad Clark comprise the judging panel. This is potentially a huge savings, especially if you have friends or family members that cater.
