52. In the face of a fascist government that ignores the consitutution...
and we still have liberals insisting that the government should be the only one who has arms.

When the brown shirts start taking people away in the middle of the night (holding up 'evidence' acquired form some NSA warentless search that no one can see because of "national security reasons") I guess we'll be better off that Bush's thugs have automatic rifles and the people have bolt action .22's.
