This topic continually arises in conversations I have with libertarian-minded friends who, when presented with arguments that maybe we should limit the firepower and death-dealing capacity readily available to the public, strike an all-knowing and world-weary pose and automatically allude to the folly of trying to ban alcohol.
I think its BS. But I would love the opinion and knowledge of the hivemind, one way or another.
