If the government were to pass an unconstitutional law purporting to ban firearms, two thirds of Americans with guns in their household say they would defy the lawless legislation and refuse to comply, according to a recent poll conducted by Fox News.

"Progressives" call gun rights advocates "delusional" for fearing that "gun registration will lead to gun confiscation," but experience, current legislation, and the admissions of anti-gun activists show those fears are well founded.
Jamie Foxx is one of a bevy of Hollywood celebrities who appear in a new video urging Washington to come up with a plan to end gun violence. But of course, like liberals everywhere, they’re talking about more controls over you and me — not what they do in their own lives.

After Democrats in New York rammed a sweeping assault on the right to keep and bear arms through the legislature that failed to exempt police officers from the draconian restrictions, gun owners and even some lawmakers are planning what has been dubbed potentially the largest act of civil disobedience in state history.
