Mr. Barber is telling it straight. Personal protection and hunting are two side-benefits of firearm ownership. The real use for a firearm becomes instantly apparent when armed Federal government goons attempt to confiscate firearms in incarcerate firearm owners. If the peons in Mexico were all armed, the cartels and the corrupt Federales would have been toast a long time ago. //// The big media stink over banning firearms/confiscating firearms et cetera is classic misdirection. Look! Look over here! Don't look at how we have failed to take ANY action to avert a fiscal tsunami. Think about this: Between today (14JAN13) and Debt Ceiling Day (15FEB13), our Representatives will be in session a total of 9 legislative days.
