Gun control was actually one of the primary issues I had to wrap my head around when I first became anarchist, because I'd just heard so much shite from the states.
Then when I looked at what gun controls were being proposed; making it more difficult for poor, poc, queer and neurodivergent folks to obtain firearms while leaving guns in the hands of the police and military - that's when I saw what was wrong with liberal gun control solutions.
Like so many liberal statist solutions it's addressing the symptoms, while the problem itself will only get worse.

Joke: "FROM MUH COLD DEAD HANDS!"
Broke: "We need gun control"
Woke: "Guns are necessary for community defense in the absence of a standing army or police force. Access to firearms is not the primary factor behind shootings much less violence in general. Switzerland has the 4th highest rate of gun ownership but the 8th lowest rate of gun related deaths, some other countries are similar in this respect. Gun control often hits marginalized groups the hardest, the very same groups that often can't rely upon our existing state powers to protect them. It also makes revolutionary action more difficult in that it strips weapons from the proletariat while leaving the bourgeoise with their armed security forces (and the weapons they are able to pay exorbitant amounts to have)."

Imagine honking at your wife. Your wife, my guy. As she's trying to actually parent. Men are such trash, the nerve
