I was once asked by a citizen disarmament advocate, a follower of the Bradys, what I thought about more firearm restrictions. I began to answer when he impatiently broke in, "Give me the short answer." I replied, "Okay. . . If you try to take our firearms we will kill you." All the fellow could do was stare at me in disbelief. This is the restated meaning of "shall not be infringed." Some people, however, have to have it translated for them. Believe me, the NRA is the least of the citizen disarmament advocates' problems.
Confronting bigots with their own mortality is a sure way to explain to them the seriousness of their misguided actions. - TotC
