Why am I so passionate about the right to keep and bear arms, and why do gun rights matter so much to me? It is because an attack on the right of self defense is an attack on the masculine principle, whose job it is to defend the family from harm. Assault rifles are essentially a metaphoric representation of the masculine principle of self-defense, and attempting to ban them is done to humiliate and emasculate what’s left of the masculine principle in the West. When looked at from this viewpoint, it is imperative that we stand up for our right to self-defense as sovereign individuals, and not forfeit our defense to our slave masters instead.
To deny my right to self defense; my right to protect myself, my family, and my property from harm—is to deny my own masculinity and nature. The feminine principle is non-aggressive, while the masculine principle is defensive; predators seek to shame and guilt the masculine aspect in order to better prey upon the feminine aspect. If men refuse to let go of their masculinity and its metaphoric symbols (such as assault rifles), and stand firmly in their power, they will protect themselves, their families, and their properties from harm. This is a line in the sand that must be drawn, and as many American’s rightly state, “you can have my guns when you pry them out of my cold, dead hands.”
I hope there was other way to fight violence beside guns…
Firearms are merely a symbol of self-defense, and an intermediate step to learning how to defend oneself from harmful people and/or organizations. I wrote an article on it last year: http://theunityprocess.com/the-one-dimensional-gun-control-debate/

If everyone had a means to defend themselves from any and all attacks there would be no violence.
