I have a right to have a gun to protect myself. I mean, someone with a gun could barge in and shoot at me ! Proof is, having a gun to defend themselves sure saved all those people in the theater that shot back at the madman.
Oh wait... Having a gun to defend yourself doesn't work. I'm not even talking about having the right to carry one, I'm saying that excuse is wrong on the ground that it doesn't work, I haven't heard about a lot of shooting incidents where the victims proved their right to have a gun was useful.
If I struggled to the end of my determination, to the end of my way of life with my followers, if the result is ruin, then this ruin is inevitable. Grieve. Shed tears. But you cannot regret.
