    The above link will be an eye opener for a few folks. It ain't NRA and it ain't Rocket Science.

    An excerpt;

    SOURCE: The Daily Post-Athenian, Athens, Tenn., August 7, 1946; pages 1, 6.

    Mrs. Roosevelt Grasps Local Facts Better Than Most

    Editor's Note — Our attention has been called to Mrs. Roosevelt's column upon McMinn. She seems to have grasped the facts and significance better than any other outside writer:

    McMinn A Warning — By Eleanor Roosevelt

    New York, Monday — After any war, the use of force throughout the world is almost taken for granted. Men involved in the war have been trained to use force, and they have discovered that, when you want something, you can take it. The return to peacetime methods governed by law and persuasion is usually difficult.

    We in the U.S.A., who have long boasted that, in our political life, freedom in the use of the secret ballot made it possible for us to register the will of the people without the use of force, have had a rude awakening as we read of conditions in McMinn County, Tennessee, which brought about the use of force in the recent primary. If a political machine does not allow the people free expression, then freedom-loving people lose their faith in the machinery under which their government functions ...............

    If you dig deep enough into the Democratic Party of the south, not only were they KKK members and supporters, They became entrenched anti 2A because they new the returning "black" Hero's of WWII understood the meaning behind the 2A.

    And some would not be afraid to stand UP for their God given rights!!!

    And as my LEO friends say, "there is nothing worse then a corrupt LEO"
