Ever see Westerns where guns were surrendered to the sheriff while in city limits
The irony ... is that Tombstone lawmakers in the 1880s did more to combat gun violence than the Arizona government does today.
For all the talk of the “Wild West,” the policymakers of 1880 Tombstone—and many other Western towns—were ardent supporters of gun control. When people now compare things to the “shootout at the OK Corral,” they mean vigilante violence by gunfire. But this is exactly what the Tombstone town council had been trying to avoid.

In late 1880, as regional violence ratcheted up, Tombstone strengthened its existing ban on concealed weapons to outlaw the carrying of any deadly weapons within the town limits. The Earps (who were Republicans) and Doc Holliday maintained that they were acting as law officers—not citizen vigilantes—when they shot their opponents. That is to say, they were sworn officers whose jobs included enforcement of Tombstone’s gun laws.

Yeah, but the criminals didn't follow those rules. So the movie goes on with a lot of shooting and innocent unarmed people being caught in the cross fire of some officials "good idea". I never saw one where the bad guys followed the laws and the whole movie was pieceful. You wont in real life either.

Who cares.

Government, Laws, and everything else coming from such ilk, is complete fiction.

There are no States, and no Countries.

All these things derive from the imaginations of Humans.

MOB rule.

Its the same thing, if I got a group of Men together, and we decided it was Lawful to force Women to drop their panties, and have sex with us.

All fiction in the minds of Humans.

We dont see this in Nature.

We are as far from Nature as we can be. Because of this, Nature is, and will, correct us, and set us back on the right path.

Mother Nature has done it before, and she WILL do it again.

No one escapes her wrath.
