I have to ask something: What are the rules in american society when it comes to getting a drivers license? Do you have to take driving lessons and make tests to show that you are capable of driving a car? And do you also have to take further lessons in order to get a license for driving trucks and so forth? How much of this is regulated at a state levels compared to governmental level?
And the argument that oppressed groups would stand a greater chance if they had guns available: no, they would still not stand a chance against a militarized government bent on oppressing some of its people.
Driving is pretty heavily regulated in the U.S. (though not as much as it should be) while guns are woefully unregulated. In my state, you could walk into a store, show the person behind the counter your license (drivers license, not a gun license) and walk out with a semi-automatic rifle.

I bet that on launch the Nintendo Switch will have no built in in-game voice chat. He bets that it will. The winner gets six months of avatar control over the other user.
