» Imagine a Moratorium on Gun Control in 2012 – Big Government

Interesting.  I wasn’t sure what to expect when I read this article, but it’s interesting and logical.  I’d at least like to give it a try.  I would rather be able to protect myself and my family than have the police arrive only to try to solve the crime after the fact.

via Big Government:

What would happen if the United States enjoyed a moratorium on restrictions on equipment for rifles, a moratorium on the enforcement of types of guns, acoustic suppressors, length of a rifle, magazine capacity or where and when one can concealed carry? What would change?

The greatest fear of gun control is personal independence of the citizen, where the silliness of large bureaucracies is self-evident. Since America’s first gun control measures, public servants have been able to plumb the depths of the electorate’s tolerance for political nonsense and find a rather broad tolerance for the earliest appearance of impropriety and corruption. Once servants learned that the electorate will delegate to them the illusion of protecting our personal safety, they believed and acted upon the practice of getting the people to delegate them anything. Officials haven’t stopped since.

What would happen if Americans could stop violent acts on their authority instead of being restrained from acting in emergency? What would happen if more Americans – by the millions – became increasingly aware of their legal authority to act in refusing to be a victim?

Seriously, what would happen? What would happen if more citizens refused to be a victim of crime and system both?
