Two posts doesn't change the thread topic unless more members take the thread that direction.
The example to guns was an example of government thinking citizens need their control over every aspect of their lives.
according to Comey. â€œFolks are wandering around that proverbial parking lot of the Internet all day long, without giving it a thought to whose attachments theyâ€™re opening, what sites theyâ€™re visitingâ€, according to the FBI director.
So i will paraphrase a bit:
So "we the government need to receive all e-mails first. Open any attachments . Then send you what we think is safe. Because you are too stupid to take security precautions yourself".
Many governments have already done this with guns.
Their philosophy is the common citizen is too stupid to have & use a gun without wrongly killing themselves or someone else.
So the government must take control to protect us from ourselves.
