Thank you but I'm not leftwing so that wouldn't be appropriate.

One more thing I would wish to add since you call yourself an anarchist. If the government bombs American cities, its over. The military and population will turn on them and we'll install a new government. Without guns, we would be at their mercy.

The government HAS bombed at least one city, Philly in 1985. And no response from military and near zero from the population. Most never heard of it and probably supported it if they did.

As a leftist, I do agree that an unarmed revolution is a short and futile revolution. The plutocracy will cede nothing willingly.

Anarchists care a fuck load about guns and defending yourself. But if you cared in a non-racist way, you would cry out foul to all those "conservatives" who ignore the goverment's incredibly devious gun removal and literal assassination of the Black Panthers, and before that, the literal ongoing holocaust of the indiginous. Why only cry foul on certain issues that don't include the liberty of literal human beings?
