Each of these thought leaders and icons of The Left believed in guns. They all were enameled with the power that a gun provided over a person or people without a gun. The power of the gun could be used and in many cases was used against anyone whose thoughts or ideas conflicted with those of these leaders. Che used guns to eliminate those that stood on his way (" the ends justify the means"). All of these icons spoke of fairness, equality, and redistribution on the economic and political/community organizing sense. Ironic that the NRA actually achieves fairness, equality, and redistribution of power in its pursuit and protection of The 2nd Amendment.
