That's because you understand that the purposes are exactly opposite. Nuclear weapons are to prevent war. Guns are meant for killing Americans.


While the argument can be made that it is very little likely the leaders of countries will pull their triggers compared to street thieves who will never see the consequences if they kill, people want guns for exactly the same reason: To protect themselves from other people with guns.

How illogical.
Both are tools that can be used either offensively or defensively.

Not "other people with guns" but barbarians who would use guns to initiate aggression, that's who we want to be able to defend ourselves against.
My Father owned guns for 75 years and no one ever needed to defend themselves from him, because he wasn't a barbarian.

The U.S. has had nuclear bombs for almost as long, and only used them once in order (arguably) to save millions of lives, never to initiate aggression.

If the U.S. had wanted to nuke the Kim Regime, we could have done it anytime... But we didn't, not even when the Kim Regime was involved in a war of aggression and conquest.

My thought is that Young Kim want's nukes because he believes they give him an umbrella of protection that will allow him to initiate another war of aggression and conquest.

Yes, or if he never invades, he would use the constant threat of a nuclear backed invasion to force the U.S. to "negotiate" with him.  I'm not sure what he wants from the negotiations except more cash which any Democratic president and many Republican presidents would give to him.

Mainly, I think he just wants to be in negotiations with the U.S. so that he can pretend that North Korea is on the same level as the U.S.
