To support gun control.
To be a supporter of gun control requires one to ignore history. It requires supporters to purposely forget the history of disarmed citizens being turned on by their own governments and slaughtered in massive numbers (262 million people in the 20th century, alone).
Additionally, to be a gun control supporter, you must have an “it can’t happen here” mentality. You must believe that somehow the nature of our own government and the nature of humans that led to such a massive destruction of life in the past century have both changed very recently and very tremendously, without evidence.
You must ignore these things, even as our government seeks more power and more control over the citizenry across ever facet of society.
