    Wow! It's amazing how the enemies that fought so fierce a battle can reconcile now.

    If the govt gets their hands on the American peoples guns, the whole world will feel that wrath. If they suececd and get your guns, the world slips into a NWO coma. The American people cannot let that happen. Once again, the American people are the line in the sand or last line of defense in terms of freedom of the world. Love or hate America, this is the truth.
