Ja Billw, but that makes it sound like we would be buying the weapons.  Given an acknowledgement of their rights, they would buy their own weapons and ammo, the way our militia does.  It isn’t “we” who have armed citizenry, it is Afghan citizenry which has an armed citizenry.  That doesn’t cost us anything and they don’t owe anyone anything.


Any disarmed civilian population creates an attractive target for things like the holocaust of the 1940s and like this catastrophe currently unfolding in Afghanistan.
