    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.

    And the tiny fraction for whom heroic raids are currently well tuned? Too bad,so sad! With the arterial bleed of subs the fastest it's ever been, the vanity development that gives you guys your own content is no longer supportable.

    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.
