    "God forbid we should ever be twenty years without such a rebellion. The people cannot be all, and always, well informed. The part which is wrong will be discontented, in proportion to the importance of the facts they misconceive. If they remain quiet under such misconceptions, it is lethargy, the forerunner of death to the public liberty. ... What country before ever existed a century and half without a rebellion? And what country can preserve its liberties if their rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance? Let them take arms. The remedy is to set them right as to facts, pardon and pacify them. What signify a few lives lost in a century or two? The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants. It is its natural manure."

    -Thomas Jefferson

    Those words speak for themselves.... Does the counter-culture/hippy movement in the 60's count? Or the civil-rights movement?

    Will the long-overdue fight come when the Congress & our next President attempt to abolish or severely restrict our Right to Keep & Bear Arms?

    If they come for it, you better believe they'll get it.

    They better come armed and in many. My gun safe is 800 pounds when empty. Can't imagine how much my ammo safe weighs with 5k+ rounds and 20+ pounds of black powder. Thats provided they even made it in the house much less room.
