Demogoguery is the favorite tool of the tyrant. They mock the Constitution and exploit the bodies of dead children in order to strip the people of their rights as they tell tales designed to vilify law-abiding citizens. They go on about how you citizens really have no need to defend yourselves from their desire to rule and if you were a "decent, reasonable" sort, you would give up your rights. They wail about how there is no modern requirement for the militia, even as the Supreme Court rules this to be false. They vilify the tradional use of arms for hunting and recreation by comparing these lawful activities with murder committed by the criminally insane.
