3. I was thinking along the same lines

And how would you use your arms to stand up against the oppression?

When Nixon conspired with South Vietnam to abandon the peace talks LBJ was pursuing to end the Vietnam War, resulting in a war that lasted years longer and took many more American lives--a traitorous act: Where were the guns?

When Reagan conspired with Iran to hold onto the American hostages until after the 1980 elections, promising American military hardware in exchange for cash to send to Ollie North's death squads in Central America--a traitorous act: Where were the guns?

When the Supreme Court conspired to intervene in the 2000 elections by stopping the vote counting in Florida thereby giving the election to the loser Bush: Where were the guns?

When Bush sat and did nothing while we were attacked by his family friends and business partners, the Saudis: Where were the guns?

When Bush first said he saw the first attack on TV, then said it was reported to him, obviously lying: Where were the guns?

When Bush said he instructed his staff to respond to the attack even though the video shows no communication with CoS Andrew Card: Where were the guns?

When Bush and Cheney lied about Iraq and WMDs and invaded a country that had nothing to do with 9/11: Where were the guns?

When the Supreme Court granted "personhood" to corporations: Where were the guns?

When it was revealed that the US was engaging in torture: Where were the guns?

When Nancy Pelosi announced any investigation of Bush and Cheney for war crimes was "off the table:" Where were the guns?

When Wall Street and Big Bankers pulled swindles that crashed the world economy, then got Congress to give them money to bail them out: Where were the guns?

When American taxpayers financed huge CEO bonuses of corrupt bankers and Wall Street brokers: Where were the guns?

When the justice department refused to investigate and indict HSBC's money laundering of $880,000,000 of drug cartel and terrorist money: Where were the guns?

When voter suppression was undertaken by Republicans: Where were the guns?

And, when Social Security, which has nothing to do with the deficit, is "on the table" during deficit-reduction "compromising:" Where are the guns?

The NRA and its ilk are avid supporters of the Second Amendment, but only when it favors their political positions...
