I'm still waiting for NRA to tell us how much they aim to profit from arming the increased security. It looks like we see how much it costs to the tax payer, but I'd like to know how much they aim to make.d

It failed without any numbers, but simple logic. It's a double edged sword. A simple robbery can arm a criminal, if the armed home owner is not home. For all the fear it strikes into criminals during rare home invasions, it can arm criminals who are otherwise committing a much more common burglary.
The practice of manipulation by fear in the united states has reached an ever higher plateau. The government is coming for your heath care, your guns, your taxes and your soul. Their coming to make you gay and an atheist. Sadly combating the fear borne of sheer ignorance is the highest price we pay as a species.
I'm getting the impression that he's not seriously implying those things. It's the use of fear as a method of making people believe that the government is out to get you. Could also be described as sensationalism, as seen in our wonderful media.

Please respond to that.
it does not change the fact that by rising up against a tyrannical united states government would be an act of treason no matter how hard you try and spin it. there is not a court in the country that would find you not guilty of treason for taking up arms against the government.
