Can anyone come up with a case, where an armed population has been successfully silenced? I think the RKBA should have been listed first!! --Rocky

Well first up there is no population that has been successfully disarmed, as black market and ingenuity can circumvent any prohibition.

But I'd say what's going on in Burma is pretty close. China and Venezuela also come to mind.

Great shot, Oleg. BTW I totally want an M&P9....but we can't get the normal Magazines here in the state where they're made. I'll just have to wait for the laws to change.

I don't really think China's population counts as armed.

Good call, I misread the question. Bottom line, attempting to silence an armed populace is a good way to catch lead....but it appears from history that allowing free-speech but gun control rarely incites rebellion....and then once disarmed you can silence them.

Hi

I just ran into an idea I think is worth doing.
Would you consider creating a few RKBA based calendars with election day highlited? We could print them and mail them to our potential "representatives."

Best regards,
Byron

So long as it was presented in such a way as to not be perceived as a threat by said reresentatives..
