That was...........AWESOME!

Absolutely! Next: have him explain why Saddam Hussein managed to be a ruthless dictator for a generation in Iraq, when Iraqis were free to own guns, and many were required by law to have guns in their homes. At the end of his regime, there were more guns in homes in Iraq than there were people in homes. Somehow Saddam managed to hang on.

Maybe the line that it keeps the dictators in line is just a bunch of hogwash? I realize this is another one of those unfortunate "fact" things that fails to align with your preconceived notions, but I keep hoping you will someday start using logic rather than soundbites as a basis of your decision making.

Faint hope, probably.
