    I bet many Americans don't really even know who these two were, let alone the perspective from which each made his statement. Even if they did, I doubt their quotes would be taken seriously since both are ancient history in many peoples' minds.

    I think most people know who Hitler is. You are probably right about Patrick Henry.

    Most only know that one of the Kardashians is pregnant. They are but kool aide drinkers and fodder for the fire.

    Liberals didn't always hate the 2ND amendment.

    -- Hubert H. Humphrey, Senator, Vice President, 22 October 1959


    . – Walter Mondale

    How far astray the left has gone. Hubert Humphrey and Walter Mondale would not be welcome in the democrat party today.

    They only know the Hitler of caricature, not of history.

    Hitler was Democrat.

    Suzanna Gratia Hupp explains meaning of 2nd Amendment!

    "Before a standing army can rule, the people must be disarmed; as they are in almost every kingdom in Europe. The supreme power in America cannot enforce unjust laws by the sword; because the whole body of the people are armed...."- Noah Webster, An Examination of the Leading Principles of the Federal Constitution, 1787

    And that is the whole reason behind this current move to ban guns. Nothing more.

    The 2nd Amendment is one of the most brilliant sections of the Constitution. In all of the checks and balances between the branches of government, this is a great check and balance between the people, the states, and the federal government. If the idiots in charge now can destroy the right to bear arms, the other nine parts of the Bill of Rights will be meaningless.

    Some steps were left out.......

    ** Regulating sale of bullets.

    ** Increasing taxes and fees.

    ** Government buying and stockpiling bullets, thus less availability at a higher price for the average gun owner. You can be sure that manufacturers will honor their contracts with the government before restocking retail stores.

    FYI: Government Buying Out All The 5.56 Military Surplus Ammo & Is Telling Ammo Dealers To Stop Selling To Their Vendors & Civilians.

    More federal agencies buy multithousands of rounds of ammo
    http://www.examiner.com/article/more-federal-agencies-buy-multithousands-of-rounds-of-ammo
    -- Note the agencies, in particular, who are buying ammo. Why does the Social Security Admin, Dept of Education, and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration need to stockpile bullets?

    Government Long on Hollow Point Bullets, Short on Answers
    http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Govern...Long-on-Hollow-Point-Bullets-Short-on-Answers


    Question:
    How many will be effectively disarmed because they cannot afford to own an empty firearm?

    Food for thought..............
