The problem is the misleading politicians and media.
Exactly. Listen to MM. The media is like Tokyo Rose, broadcasting each and every day how badly it's going for the pro second amendment supporters. The politicians are like the Japanese propagandists doing the same thing to our POW's when captured. We all know who ended up on the losing side. Remember Bill Murray's character in Stripes when they had to motivate themselves to complete their own training? He said something about "We're mongrols. We're misfits. Our forefathers were kicked out of every decent country in the world. But we're Americans!"
"If you love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen." Samuel Adams.
