-- Liberal mainstream media suggests violence against civil authority possible to end "war on drugs"

"I am looking forward to the time when drug war bureaucrats and agents become the enemy in the new drug war. I believe every town in America might one day seek out such people, burn them out of their homes and confiscate whatever is not burned for sale to the highest bidder."

"It will be good to watch those fires burn, to bid on those seized items. It will be high time the present enemy -- free people -- fought back against a corrupt and broken system. If our legislators won't stop the drug war, then we must do so ourselves 'by any means necessary.'" -- Brent Andrews

-- Nowhere in here is it stated what the percentage of female gun ownership is!

"Guns are often bought for protection, but the U.S. has the most guns, and, clearly, we are not doing a good job protecting American women," Hemenway said."
