    When An Elected Congress Comes For Your Guns: They were elected, but by whom and with what authority?

    "Sir: I have endeavored in the towns of...to carry the Resolutions of Congress into execution; but without the assistance of the battalion (Col. ...r's) I shall not be able to do it to any good purpose. The people conceal all their arms that are of any value; many declare that they know nothing about the Congress, nor do they care anything for the orders of Congress, and say they would sooner lose their lives than give up their arms; and that they would blow any man's brains out that should attempt to take them." - no citation or link required

    It isn't Congress, but elected representatives to State government that gun lovers should be trying to convince they really can be really serious with their Arms.

    Otherwise, if gun lovers' own State representatives to government don't trust them with Arms, why should the left.

    Read? You want he/she/it to actually read something!!?? I mean something not pertinent to he/she/it's single focused crusade.......
    What's interesting is reading he/she/it's response here and trying to find the logic in it. :dunno:
