    I love the story of the battle of Athens.

    It is legend, and I refer to it often in discussions about the purpose of the Second Amendment, or voter oppression, or other related topics.

    I saw that and it was a pretty awesome representation of people standing up against a corrupt system.

    Thanks , I never know about this until now . After watching it is a reminder of why we have thr 2nd amendment and why the government is trying to take it away.

    That is an awesome story. Too bad it may have to be re-enacted due to a government out of control.

    I saw that a while back, first I've heard of it. Nothing of it in the history books for sure. I wonder if you get together enough people with balls to do that today?
