    least one document from the Government defining gun rights as civil rights or something else that defined them as such, but I did not expect to be thrown these two links:

    1. To a website called Firearms and Liberty - claim to fame: "The home of the Original Multi-State Firearms Carry Course for the Midwest!" They even have a disclaimer that starts out with "No part of any of the material linked to this page should be used as legal advice." And within this website the link takes us to an "article" by a guy whose claims to fame are:

    Cramer writes a regular column on gun owners' rights and related issues for Shotgun News.

    In 2008, Cramer ran for Idaho State Senator from District 22 as a Republican, but was defeated in the primary.

    2. To a crazy Youtube video called ""No Guns for Negroes." Created by a group  called "Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership" that has billboards like these Showing Hitler saluting and saying "All in favor of gun control raise your right hand."  More on this "human-rights group" from Wikipedia:
    JPFO is noted for producing materials ... with messages that equate gun control with totalitarianism.
    [...]
    The organization also attempts to prove that genocide is linked to gun control, by showing that most countries where a genocide has taken place had gun control first.
    [...]
    Abraham Foxman, National Director of the Anti-Defamation League, wrote about the JPFO, "Anti-Semitism has a long and painful history, and the linkage to gun control is a tactic by Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership to manipulate the fear of anti-Semitism toward their own end... It is a campaign that has been viewed with concern by many in the Jewish community."
    Wow! Those two really show me conclusive evidence that the US Government defines gun rights as Civil Rights, doesn't it? A Republican wingnut that could even beat another Republican in Idaho; an "article" that does not contain the phrase civil rights anywhere; all in a Website that prominently displays such Civil Right staples as "Firearms Training," "Web Stores," and "Join the NRA" among others - a website dedicated to that most famous of civil rights: making money from making/selling guns and selling gun glasses. Wow! If that is not definitive proof that the US Government defines gun rights as Civil Rights I don't know what is, except perhaps another wingnut group that masquerades as a "human rights" that was created with the lofty Civil Rights goal of:
    Destroy so-called “gun control”
    Wow! Now that is strong evidence that gun rights are Civil Rights isn't it?
