so anyway, I can't remember where I saw this today, but you need to watch this. Fair warning: it's safe for work, but it contains some graphic images that may make you tear up (or get really pissed off). It's a little over six minutes long describing the aftermath of Australia's gun ban.
IIRC, after the Australian gun ban went into effect, they had a dramatic increase in people being attached with swords. In the twenty-first century.
A couple of relevant quotes. First, Robert Heinlein:
"An armed society is a polite society. Manners are good when one may have to back up his acts with his life."And second, a little gem I recently picked up over at Cold Fury:
"America is at that awkward stage. It's too late to work within the system, but too early to shoot the bastards." – Claire Wolfe, 101 Things to Do 'Til the RevolutionYeah, that's going to end up on the sidebar soon.
