37. Those bans didn't occur...

...in societies that already had almost one firearm for every person. They occurred in societies in which it was already uncommon for civilians to be armed, restrictions dating back to the middle ages in many cases. There are no relatively modern historical precedents to our situation. That is, there has never been a large-scale modern society with our level of weapon possession by members of the non-military, non-ruling class.
