"No people will tamely surrender their Liberties, nor can any be easily subdued when knowledge is diffused and Virtue is preserved.  On the Contrary, when people are universally ignorant, and debauched in their manners, they will sink under their own weight without the aid of foreign invaders." -- Samuel Adams (1722-1803), Letter to James Warren, 1775

Keep in mind that Obama has the most liberal voting record in Congress.  Now ask yourself whether any city would attempt to confiscate handguns from its citizens.  No?  Now take a look at what happened right after hurricane Katrina in New Orleans (perhaps the most liberal city in the US):  http://www.gunowners.org/neworleans.ram
