Stathis Papaioannou



Stathis, it isn’t Trump but rather all the followers he would need in order to make himself supreme leader.  They won’t come along, because they are the ones who would be tasked with securing the 400 million existing guns, a likely fatal assignment.


Guns work: they discourage those who would break into homes.  Plenty of Americans keep a burglar-discourager in the nightstand beside the bed.  The bad guys know this, and go into other lines of work.  Untold numbers of lives are saved as a result.
