<quoted text>Stop lying, Black Rhino! The founders said meny things that are just as important now, as when they said them. Allow me to educate your deluded liberal mind with a few of my favorite quotes for the founders:

"When Mitt Romeny has to release his tax returns, that is the mark of an evil nation." Ben Franklin, 1821.

"Only when George Bush is President, can a people really be free." George Washington, 1737

"Liberal Democrats are to liberty what vampires are to necks; they suck." Abraham Lincoln, last year.

"Benghazi!" Samual Adams, 1787.
Amazing...With all the vampires Old honest Abe was slaying, he still found time to free a slave and lead the country...

They don't make 'em like that anymore.

Well said. I have noticed that the God of the Bible is as much an unreasonable, self-contradicting jerk as the average, modern right-winger. Coincidence? I think not.

Well, a right winger would say 2 things:

1. So what if he owned slaves! The man was a job creator!

2. So what if he raped them. They were asking for it, parading around in those revealing slave dresses.

LOL! Outstanding.

Netflix finally put a movie called "CSA - The Confederate States of America" in it's data base. It's set present day and it's about if the south had won the war and blacks were still slaves, but in modern terms.

Watch it if you get a chance.

What about all the great passages? For example

Exodus 22:18 Thou shalt not suffer a witch to live.

You don't want to suffer do you? then you better kill some witches.

How about Exodus 20:17

You shall not covet your neighborÂ’s house; you shall not covet your neighborÂ’s wife, or male or female slave, or ox, or donkey, or anything that belongs to your neighbor.

This is your chance to own a few female slaves. God approves so owning people should be just fine.(What if some of your female slaves happen to be witches? Does God compensate you for your killing them?

There are plenty more, but this is just to get it started.

I don't think armed citizens are really any match for the U.S. Government. If he US Government ever decided to excersise tyranny against armed American citizens, they would easily do so. In other words, the U.S. government would easily defeat armed citizens if it came to that. The reason is simple. Ordinary citizens may have pistols, shotguns, even machine guns. But the U.S. govenment has tanks, fighter jets, and helicopter gunships. That is why the righ wing argument that an "armed populace" is a deterrent to government tyranny is absurd.
Is it? I could see the headlines now in the papers around the world. "US government lays siege to it's own people over the 2nd amendment" All things are done subtly and quietly.
Why do you suppose gun registration is required? To track the number of weapons actually owned by civilians. If you put blind trust in this government, I pity you.

ZERO.
The problem lies with the nutjobs with the over active imaginations who see helicopters coming over the horizon and gosh what they really need are assault weapons because only with semi automatics will the be able to keep those helicopters that fire fully automatic machine guns... several at any one time and that's before they decide they can use a rocket...
Nutjobs that pretend that having an AR-15 is the only thing that keeps the global conspiracy from knocking on the door.
And we Americans instead have to wake up shortly before Christmas to see yet ANOTHER OF THESE NUTJOBS taking one of your F*King toys and killing two dozen people.
ENOUGH!
You just don't get it, do you? It starts with assault rifles. Do you remember in the 80's, the sks and ak 47's were banned, that EXPIRED in 2004. Why did the ban have an expiration date if it was for the public's safety? Think about it. Now they are blaming AR-15's, how stupid.

You have actually just argued my point. If, as you imply, the US Government would not take such action against it's own people, what are you afraid of?

You seem to be saying, "We must remain armed, so that the government will not attack us, which they would never do anyway." Huh?

Cut the crap. You think the Civil war was fought over slavery. WRONG! It was fought over state rights. The very thing that will happen with the gun control issue. It's up to the states to enact gun laws, not the feds. Read history. Jefferson Davis would have freed the slaves AFTER they were educated, not turned loose like a pack of wild dogs to fend for themselves and be victimized by carpetbaggers.

What do you know about Nazi Germany's rise to power and Hitler's regime? Elimination of those that stood in Hitler's way was only the beginning. For now, I am only concerned with my ability to protect my family and myself. If the government is going to attempt to remove that self defense from me, what does that say about them? To say that the government would never do that is naive.
