Preface to atrocity

Dave Killion — November 7, 2011

Stormcloudsgathering has posted a video on Youtube called ‘Gun Toting Liberals‘ –

The focus of his message is that gun ownership is important chiefly as a means for society to defend itself against tyrannical government. The videographer supports his thesis by pointing out historical examples of populaces being disarmed by their own governments prior to being brutalized. What occurs to me is that in all these examples, citizens submit to being disarmed. Does this mean that an armed citizenry presents merely an inconvenience to aspirational tyrants, or are there numerous examples of the people resisting gun control? It seems to me that being armed is a necessary, but not sufficient, prerequisite of a free nation.
