What if every country's citizens had the right to bear arms as we do in America? Well, from my way of seeing things, the creation of South Sudan wouldn’t have been necessary because women and children would have had the ultimate protection.
Think of it this way. In every African nation that has child soldiers (and they're all boys), they can oppress populations simply because even such a child can wield sufficient power to create refugees. The same goes for the victims of ISIS.
Right now, everywhere in the world that is experiencing civil war that has no gun rights for the citizenry are at the mercy of mercenaries and arms dealers. That also means, for the entire history of the Cold War, that the US and Russia got involved to arm rebel forces. If those people had the rights to bear arms in their own countries, they could have purchased them legally in peacetime and been more self-reliant, and the impudence of tyrants would have been dissuaded.
Every time you look at the sad face of a refugee, remember that they would have defended their own homes with lethal force if they had that right.
Go ahead. Google it. "African mother with rifle". I challenge you to find 10 pictures on the entire planet. It should make you vomit.
