9. Let's not forget who invented "gun control" in the first place.

I'll give you a hint: it wasn't progressive liberal types. My understanding of the NFA of 1934 was that the Pinkertons were worried about being outgunned by striking workers, so they made an attempt to make procurement of certain types of guns very expensive for the average person.

Most gun control is very much a right wing authoritarian type concept. Please take your "concern" elsewhere.
