OSNews, Generic OSes I know that there's a number of readers who don't like it when OSnews covers political topics, I'm one of them. These political upheavals however spell danger for operating system hobbyists and so I dedicate this article to framing the political news within the context of what we are here to read about: operating systems.

There is a large part of the OSNews readership that lives in places where there is no need to have 'The right to bear arms'.
They all get along just fine.

That is not to say there there are places on this planet where this right is needed, right now, today.
Equally, some of the places that don't have this right(?) once did and their society evolved into one that no longer needed it so they gave it away. Is there something so fundamentally wrong with that? IMHO, is no there is not.
If you put your self back in time to when that Ammendment to the US Constitution was passed then the US had no standing army. So the ability to raise a militia from the population was essential.
Do those conditions still hold sway today?

This is all part of evolution. Sometimes evolution takes a wrong turning and ends up in a dead end. (Madagascan Lemurs for example, have very primitive body temperature control. Other primates don't have this problem). Nature corrects itself. It is so wrong for a society to admit that they 'got it wrong' and make efforts to put it right?
