Some understand this; some insist it's a fantasy

 Considering history, I'll go with "You want to ban arms?  Screw you."
“Venezuelans didn’t care enough about it. The idea of having the means to protect your home was seen as only needed out in the fields. People never would have believed they needed to defend themselves against the government,” Vanegas explained. “Venezuelans evolved to always hope that our government would be non-tyrannical, non-violator of human rights, and would always have a good enough control of criminality.”

He said it didn’t take long for such a wide-eyed public perception to fall apart. “If guns had been a stronger part of our culture, if there had been a sense of duty for one to protect their individual rights, and as a show of force against a government power – and had legal carry been a common thing – it would have made a huge difference,” he lamented.
Also, ever noticed that most of the clowns who hate the private citizen having arms are very fond of communism/socialism?

Not surprising; it's a lot harder to say "Do this or else" to people who can shoot back.
