The defense-against-tyranny argument may have made sense when the
weapons available to government were less different from the weapons in

The defense-against-private-violence argument may have made sense when
the militia were the only police forces available.
What we need today is to curtail the spread of lethal weapons and make
government more transparent and accountable.
