What if necessity is the mother of our invention? What necessity, and what invention? Lets assume, for a moment, we have our guns confiscated. All gone, overnight. Hundreds of millions of firearms, and billions of rounds of ammo, all taken away. Not that. It will happen, but what if? Somebody, somewhere, with ideas rolling around inside their brain, will come up with something better than a hollow branch of a tree, filled with gunpowder, shooting stones. That is essentially all we have, all we are fighting for, gunpowder in a stick. Maybe, necessity is the mother of invention, and all we need is a reason to invent the next level of self protection. They can have my AR collection, if I can have Kirks phaser. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Weapons_of_Star_Trek This is a list of weapons used on the Star Trek shows. Sure that was all science fiction, but all inventions begin as the daydream of someone. What invention can we all take advantage of, not yet developed, to take personal protection to the next age?
