Guns: Bearing Arms to Overthrow U.S. Government, Kill more American Citizens.

I have two Rachel Maddow clips dealing with the gun issue now being debated. The first deals with the myth that more guns reduces crime or gun deaths. Higher gun ownership states correlate to higher gun deaths for instance. I know, a "duh" moment, but a fact that gun advocates insist on denying.

The second clip deals with the assault weapons ban, a law Obama and Bush both supported. Maddow presents here a list of gun control policies advocated by Bush, but never protested by conservatives. More importantly, there is the bizarre interpretation that bearing arms was meant by the founding fathers to allow citizens to overthrow the U.S. government, and not just for protection or hunting. Radical? Of course.
