Famous Las Vegas magicians Penn & Teller have a great video on why Americans should keep and bear arms. Their show Bullshit on Showtime was one of the greatest TV shows ever to make it to air. Bullshit debunked scams, psychics, eco-nuttiness, conspiracy theories, right wing militarism and the roots of Islamic terrorism. It ran for a whopping eight seasons and produced 89 episodes, almost all of which are brilliant, funny and educational. This episode of the show deals with gun control and debunks much of the anti-gun nonsense generated by the uninformed press and their politician enablers. Penn Jillette has a quote talking about the tragedy pimps who use events such as the shooting in Newtown to press their agenda. He says, ““Every time something really bad happens, people cry out for safety, and the government answers by taking away rights from good people”. 

Amen Penn.
