A classic gun control refrain is, "[insert something stupid about guns], because this isn't the Wild, Wild, West!" It's probably second in popularity to the "Blood in the Street" meme
For the moment, let's ignore the fact that the "Wild, Wild West" is nothing more than a creation of Hollywood. What would a modern day "Wild, Wild West" look like? It would probably look a lot like present day Jamaica:
Jamaica: Sarah Brady Paradise. No gun show loophole. No open carry. No concealed carry. No "assault weapons" and for what few guns are legally available, they must be registered. And for what few people who can own guns, they must be licensed.
Remember, for every Australia and England, there is a Mexico and a Jamaica. The government monopoly on force that the gun controllers so desperately desire does not always lead to peace.
