Most people I know that have guns have had them all their lives. I don't think it is something they have to strut. We hunt and skeet shoot, but are not waking around with our rifles looking for attention. Hunt, then clean, then put away in safe.

Derchowitz is an uninformed leftist moron. The are 22 States, plus Puerto Rico, that have an active State Defense Force.

Maybe The current Federal Government has outlived its usefulness. Luckily we have the Constitution and the Founding Fathers design and the will of the people to fall back on.

FORA.tv Live Stream - The Constitutional Right To Bear Arms Has Outlived Its Usefulness

Sure-

And that would be "the end of the United States" begins at 7pm.

People recognize now, more than ever, with the incompetent, oppressive nature of the Obama administration, that an armed nation is very important.

Yeah...I've discovered that it's much more reasonable to listen to anonymous guys on the internet. They are much more likely to be be well-schooled in such matters and demand respect and attention.
