Why?

A sincere question.

I have no defensive weapons here in little Bimshire, and I feel completely safe. For myself, my family, and my friends.

But I guess the fact that most common people around here are at best armed with a gardening machete would change the thinking a bit from being in a space where AR-15s are available retail...

Weapons are not defensive. They are weapons.

Shields, walls, camouflage and saying sorry; those are defensive strategies.

Weapons are for threatening, maiming, killing and posturing.

If no one has guns then you don't need more guns to "defend" against non-existent guns. They are totally removed from consideration.

See above about ease of use.

Well that opinion is objectively wrong. Else why would spring guns be widely illegal? There is no AI there. There is no person pulling the trigger.
