JWR’s Comment: When politicians strenuously attempt to ban guns, a few disgruntled folks will try to ban politicians. When they do, they won’t necessarily use only guns to do so. Human bodies are fragile and there are many ways of bringing about their demise, such as: bombs, poisons, light aircraft, UAVs, VBIEDs, incendiaries, neurotoxins, hallucinogens and dissociatives, chemical weapons, radioisotopes, small arms, electrocution, drowning, archery, oxygen-displacing inert gasses (and other forms of asphyxia and atelectasis), rockets, blunt instruments, various medical procedure “accidents”, cellular-level dehydration agents, ship scuttling, aircraft sabotage, flammables, intentional introduction of diseases and parasites, binaries, architecturally-embedded klystron tubes and other microwave emitters, navigation system overrides and other malicious computer code or virii, transdermal carriers such as DMSO, liquid metal embrittlement chemicals, HVAC system sabotage, poisonous snake/insect/fish/shellfish venom, vertigo-inducing drugs, and good old-fashioned defenestration.
