The fact that the GOVERNMENT would even consider removing the natural right to bear arms is the very reason why the 2nd Amendment was written.

I guess that I shouldn't make a joke, here, about Siouxie, the Sioux I knioux.

I have just finished re-reading James Fenimore Cooper's The Leatherstocking Tales. (You know: Natty Bumppo, Hawkeye and The Last of the Mohecans, The Deerslayer, The Pathfinder, and so on.)

Cooper grew up in western New York State when it was still a wilderness, and his family's little town (Cooperstown, for you baseball fans) was an oasis of "civilization" in a "desert" of thick forest.

Cooper knew Indians, and he appreciated their culture and their amazing woodland-survival skills. There is a lot of Indian reality in his five-novel series, even though reading his turgid prose will make your eyes cross and your brain cry "Uncle."

The Sioux Guide to Situational Awareness has its parallel in Cooper's much earlier Leatherstocking Tales.
