Acting as if constitutionally-codified, God-given and natural inalienable rights are a matter of a popularity contest, the New York Times reports "Share of Homes With Guns Shows 4-Decade Decline."
“If there was a national registry that recorded all firearm purchases, we’d have a full picture,” he said. “But there’s not, so we’ve got to put together pieces.”
Yeah, well if there were a national registry you'd have a civil war before you could get your first data, Mr. "social scientist." Doug Rink is skeptical of the whole premise of the story, as he should be.
In any case, whether we are a declining minority or not, our rights are not subject to a popularity contest, despite what the New York Times editorial board and their lapdog "journalists" may think. They may wish, in their heart of hearts, that "It's okay to oppress them, they're a declining minority." That kind of thinking is just going to get some people -- maybe a whole lot of people -- killed over the point. Unfortunately, they think that this is all about conventional propaganda preparation of the political battlefield, with the argument settled by majority vote of the people or the Supreme Court. Yet, when the rules of the political game are rigged for the tyrant, the armed citizen can overturn the table. Even if the game board is the entire earth.
