Great point in right to own guns debate

I was having a civil discussion with a friend that has been swayed into believing the latest gun ban bills are a good idea. I came up with a discussion / argument he could not find a way to refute.

Simply put, I asked him to imagine that the most oppressed and criminal countries (Iran and North Korea are the example I gave) of the world developed nuclear abilities. If the UN then pushed for the US to give up their nuclear weapons, what would you want the USA to do?

Of course he wants the US to maintain a great National Defense system and to keep nuclear weapons if such a situation was to occur. I asked then why we as citizens would want to give up our defense system (our guns) when we know the most oppressed criminals of our country have guns.

His silence was very rewarding.

Just my latest two cents worth.......
