The problem is not whether they are armed or not.
And the problem is not whether they are armed legally, or not, Dred Scot be damned.
The context for the problem can be summarized within the known anthropological outcomes of income inequality. Domestic violence increases. Crime goes up. Trust of the sovereignty de-creases. Black markets thrive. Social order breaks down.
Maslow's hierarchy of needs develops a lower center of gravity.
Over and over we hear that the high gun ownership rate in America is the problem.

I'm not watching some Netflix show about rappers. The most effective policy response to the black market is to end it by ending the stupid drug war.
As for effective policy responses to poverty, make it easier to make money. Like, for example, let people braid hair for a living without requiring lots of unrelated training. But that's another Kochy thread. You've got lots of thoughts about taking property away. Go there and share your thoughts about allowing people to make money in ways they choose.
