Pratt's position on 2nd Amd and politicians' fear is only morally defensible one

Gun rights advocates, in our abhorrence for unnecessary violence, fervently hope power hungry officials' fear of the armed citizenry makes that violence unnecessary. Why do those who claim to be motivated by a desire to end "gun violence" wish for deterrence to fail, and for violence to thus become the only alternative to abject submission to tyranny? [More]

That's today's St. Louis Gun Rights Examiner. Please give it a look, and tell a friend--and Facebook "likes" and "shares" are hugely appreciated.

The FBI and Homeland Security should investigate Larry Pratt. They should also investigate all those other right-wing radicals who have made similar terroristic threats.

Like Thomas Jefferson: "What country can preserve its liberties if its rulers are not warned from time to time that the people preserve the spirit of resistance?" And, "The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government."

And Abraham Lincoln: "This country belongs to the people. Whenever they grow weary of the existing government, they can exercise their constitutional right to amend it or their revolutionary right to overthrow it."

Or Hubert Humphrey: "The right of citizens to keep and bear arms is one guarantee against arbitrary government, one more safeguard against a tyranny which now appears remote in America but which historically has proved to be always possible."

Joel Barlow: "The danger (where there is any) from an armed citizenry is only to the government, not to society, and as long as they have nothing to revenge in government (which they cannot, while it is in their own hands), there are many advantages in their being accustomed to the use of arms, and no disadvantages."

Charles Austin Beard: "One of the best ways of getting a reputation as a dangerous citizen these days is to go about repeating the very phrases which our founding Fathers used in the struggle for independence."
