    At least Paul Revere will have it easier this time:

    GEICO Paul Revere Commercial - Happier than Paul Revere with a Cell Phone - YouTube




    Amusing little historical piece of useless trivia, the real Paul Revere stopped at numerous pubs during his famous ride and was very drunk (and rowdy) by the time he was into his ride, so much so that he was detained by British soldiers in an 18th century DWI stop of sorts. They evidently let him go despite what he was shouting since they wrote him off as just some drunk...

    This sure feels like more of the "intellectual academic" types trying to build a case for why guns should be confiscated from all those dangerous "redneck revolutionaries" out there.

    I have heard this same scentiment many, many times before. I of course have no opinion regarding such things, as I firmly belive our Government does
    everything absolutely in the Peoples' best interest, and are totally innocent of any wrong doing in ALL of its endeavors.

    Beg to differ.

    Jefferson wrote this in reference to Shays' Rebellion in Massachusetts. It had nothing to do with the French Revolution.

    YES, and I have explained why on this board many times. There is a difference between a tyrant and a
    government consisting of the many moving and interacting parts which comprise our government. The founders
    not only would not have considered the possibility of rebellion being needed against a government under our constitution,
    but they had a little experience with some hot-spots of rebellion and knew how to put them down, and the necessity of doing so.
    And that included old TJ himself, when he was president.

    This is the way I see it. The majority of Americans do not have what it takes to be involved in an armed revolution. The closest we would ever come is a militia group or some other small percentage of Americans rising up and subsequently be slapped back into place by the long arm of our advanced military. To think that an armed revolution could take place in which the US Military is on the opposing side is laughable. However, if the Military were on the revolution side that is a different story. Our military despite certain people in powers best effort remains the best in the world. I don't care how may guns or ammunition remain in the hand of the US people, No living American have never seen the horror of war at their door steps. When kids are dying in the streets any revolution talk will come to an end in short order.
