Arms necessary to fight tyranny

Federal and some state government officials, to include President Obama, Sen. Dianne Feinstein, and Gov. Andrew Cuomo, have decided to use the Sandy Hook tragedy as an excuse to attack and eviscerate the Second Amendment (i.e. expressing opinions such as military type weapons do not belong in the hands of the citizens, or 10-round magazines are not needed for hunting). I have yet to hear any news reporter challenge these leaders as to their misleading statements. (Bob Schieffer of CBS News even went so far as to liken President Obama’s confrontation with the NRA as being similar as our nation’s fight against Nazism.)
