At least they are supposed to remind government the people have some power in our hands as well - if our police can bare arms then so shall we to prevent the powers that be from becoming too powerful. Corrupt power corrupts absolutely and banning guns is the next domino coming down.
Now they are proposing we must have insurance to carry guns - (Massachusetts is proposing this idea) - has it occurred to anyone in Occupy that the purpose of the right to bare arms is to protect yourself against a corrupt government? ..so in order to protect ourselves in the future from our corporate captors, we'll now have to pay our captors and get the permission to do so. Since insurers can decide to deny coverage based on credit bureaus FICO and who knows what else may be in that FICO report - our sole ability to rebel against a corrupt CORPORATE BOUGHT government and the people who corrupted it, relies on their permission to do so - um... do you think anyone in this movement might be denied gun coverage based on their Patriot Act Score? (That may be next) They are using FEAR once again to subvert our rights. The economy is about ready to fall into the shitter and reliable, renowned economists are predicting a total economic meltdown in 2 years time.
SO - Why do you think they might want to make sure that only the elite carry weapons / only the people who can afford insurance or who are granted coverage to carry? Wow is all I can say. Step outside of your normal beliefs on gun ownership and please take a moment to contemplate the implications of this !!! Occupy ...this isn't good.
at a time when corporations are making unprecedented grabs for power within our government, when they want to become our government - are we going to let them take away our last means of protection against their abuses if in the future all else has failed and they succeed in become our totalitarian oppressors?
In Conclusion - Guns are the people's INSURANCE POLICY against Corrupt Government !!!!
While I myself don't own any guns - I still believe in preserving the right to keep my government in check (even if it is only symbolically.)
