There Are No Barbarians At the Gates

An excellent essay from The High Road regarding the condition of our Nation, and the reasons to fight any effort at gun control. Emphasis is Mongo's --
"... the Founding Fathers knew well, and it is the reason they wrote 'A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state,' into the Second Amendment. Their perception, their genius, was that an armed population, ready and willing to fight for their freedoms, was the only sure defense against the barbarians. And their wisdom proved to be still relevant nearly two hundred years later, when Admiral Yamamoto told Prime Minister Tojo, 'You cannot invade the mainland United States. There would be a rifle behind every blade of grass.'"

The article points out that there are now no barbarians at our gates. They are in our airplanes, our schools, our streets, our homes. We reserve the right, and demand the right to defend ourselves and those we hold dear.
