Nothing is more vulnerable to a corrupt and illegal government than an UNARMED
society.  Thus, the first step for such a government to ensure its own
longevity is to disarm its citizens. Whats the old saying? people who ignore
history are doomed to repeat it? in this case at least, history is
irrelevant, all you need do is keep abreast of current events, sadly this
society is to busy watching such mindless drivel as rickie lake or jerry
springer to figure out whats going on.
