So?

Pick up a gun and defend yourself. The police can’t be everywhere....

I suspect this is grandstanding - trying to prove to their base that violating the Second Amendment is essential by playing up the usual nebulous “threats” that they have always received. Liberals are liars who don’t even think it’s wrong to lie for what they consider a good cause such as expanding their power.

Call in the boys with guns! That makes a lot of sense. LOL! Maybe Piers Morgan could send in his “armed response security” guys that protect his house. America has become a joke. The Founding Fathers have to be spinning in their graves. I feel really bad for John Adams. He must be spun out by now. His life’s work has been thrown away by people who do not care about anything other than themselves. Me! Me! Me!

They’re overthrowing the constitution and they’re worried about their safety.

How surprising.

“dozen legislators contacted the State Capitol Police because they were concerned for their safety.”

If they’re looking for sympathy they can find it in the dictionary between sh*t and syphilis.

Hey Capitol Police, it's time to stand between your beloved Congress critter and the leftist DemoRat low information illegal alien psycho Obama just let out of prison.

Enjoy.

Every damned one of those rats and RINOs should live in fear the rest of their natural lives. Given the current cost of ammunition, however, they aren’t worth shooting.

Its good when the government is just a tad afraid of the people they make laws for. We can spot a potential nazi from a mile away...

You passed these oppressive laws, so man up. Don’t ask for some civil service cop to protect your sorry asses. Man up and do it yourselves.

Well, they’re trying to wreck people’s lives for innocent & reasonable behavior. People tend to not respond well to that.

"i just ordered it(used) last week, should be here any day now... "

I think I bought four copies years ago so that I would have some to pass on to friends who needed educating. The historical account of gun laws is something every new pro-gunner needs to know.

Unfortunately, I inadvertently let go of my last copy. Amazon shows copies available starting at over $400. Did you get a better deal?

Here’s a link to the book.
It’s out of print and demand seems to exceed supply for existing copies.

These legislators should be happy it isn’t 1772 and the Stamp Act. But they may want to read about it.

I was aware that there was such a link. How did you establish that it is "legitimate"? Has the author agreed to it? Did the author not sell the rights at original publication? I didn't find a way to contact the web site owner to ask.

Good question. I’ve read somewhere that it was but sent a note to the author to verify. You can also buy it at accuratepress.net. When I hear back from Mr. Ross I will post it on this thread.
