Join Thom Hartmann for a unique deep dive exploration into the vast arc of the history of slave patrols and the Second Amendment. How guns facilitated the most massive genocide in history which happened right here on this continent, and how the Second Amendment has been twisted and distorted by the Supreme Court and the gun manufacturers into something that the founders would never have recognized. Thom will also explain what we can do about the gun crisis in the United States, what other countries have done, and what we can learn from it, and lay out the forces arrayed against us that we have to either bring to our way of thinking or simply defeat at the polls to keep ourselves and our children safe.
