  •  Beware, I'm armed and dangerous! (0+ / 0-)

    I have the right to vote. Tyranny has no chance against such odds.
    The founding fathers had no such voice with England. To believe today that armed insurrection, rather than democratic principals, is a viable solution to governance, is an insult to all those that sacrificed their lives to give us the Declaration of Independence and the United States Constitution.
    The voting booth is not a vending machine that produces what we always wished for after pressing the button, and the reaction to your disappointment should not be a call to arms.

    •  Noble words.... (0+ / 0-)

      ...but tyranny abounds in our nation's history.  Our governors have on numerous occasion used American citizens as canon fodder only for us in time to discover that the motives were not as we were led to believe.  

      At this point in the debate there has been little represented that reflects a convincing argument for ignoring the people part of the equation prior to implementing any new constraints on guns.
