The average American today is grossly ignorant of our history and we fall prey too often to those cutting us off from that history—for whatever reason. Here is a case in point. In an obscure display in the state of Washington, liberals are melting down over the presence of flat steel depictions of guns—guns held by silhouettes of Revolutionary War Minute Men.
