When that Constitution was written, people had muskets... So okay, you can have all the muskets you want.
Hey, dips***: when the Constitution was written, the musket was a state-of-the-art "assault weapon". Using your logic, Americans should be able to purchase select-fire/fully automatic M-16s and Heckler & Koch MP-5s.
Oh, and then there's Leibowitz's utterly bizarre assertion that the entire 20th century never happened.
Their paranoid fear of a possible dystopic future prevents us from addressing our actual dystopic present. We can’t even begin to address 30,000 gun deaths that are actually in reality happening in this country every year because a few of us must remain vigilant against the rise of imaginary Hitler.Within the last seven decades alone, Leftist governments -- National Socialists (Nazis), Communists, Maoists, and other Leftists -- slaughtered more than 250 million of their citizens.
Two hundred and fifty million. Two hundred and fifty million men, women and children. Rounded up by their own governments and shot, stabbed, gassed, starved and otherwise slaughtered.
250 million dead in the last century alone.
These mass-murders were carried out -- in every case -- by the ideological ancestors of the Left.
Not Tea Partiers. Not Constitutional Conservatives. But by the ideological ancestors of the Left.
Couldn't happen here, you say? Barack Obama's political mentor begs to differ.
And when I pursued this further, they estimated they would have to eliminate 25 million people in these reeducation centers.
And when I say “eliminate,” I mean “kill.”
Twenty-five million people.
I want you to imagine sitting in a room with 25 people, most of which have graduate degrees, from Columbia and other well-known educational centers, and hear them figuring out the logistics for the elimination of 25 million people.
And they were dead serious.
Jon Leibowitz wants to talk about an "imaginary Hitler"?
Is Bill Ayers imaginary? You know, the man who launched Barack Obama's political career and wanted to kill 25 million Americans?
25 million Americans represents roughly a million Sandy Hooks.

I wonder what Germany's Jews or Mao's victims would tell us about disarmament, if they could offer us counsel from the afterlife?
