"To own firearms is to affirm that freedom and liberty are not gifts from the state. It is to reserve final judgment about whether the state is encroaching on freedom and liberty, to stand ready to defend that freedom with more than mere words, and to stand outside the state’s totalitarian reach."
Jeffrey R. Snyder
American attorney, author
A Nation of Cowards, 113 Public Interest (Fall 1993).

That is exactly right. It isn't about hunting or target shooting. 10 stars.

    Puh-leeze. Take a nap and calm down. This insidious incitement to armed rebellion is the product of a fevered mind. Trouble is, it reaches other fevered minds and stirs up a ton of trouble. It's treasonous as well.

    Phoenix...The English said the same thing about the Americans. But that's a "history" thing and probably way over your head. :)

    And Puh-leeze...slither back under you rock.
    No one is "inciting" anything!
    It's all in your over active imagination...
    and BTW, the only treason being committed is coming from "inside" the White House.
    (hope that helps) :)

    "A: from Phoenix, treasonous against who ? - The occupying statist theocracy infesting this land ? - The unconstitutional / unlawful despots that fill the bodies that are called executive, legislature, judicial ? There is no representative republic where the land of the free and home f the brave once was so, a healthy dose of 1776 would be virtuous not treasonous.

    Absolutely. This cannot be repeated often enough.
