The billboard

It's reportedly been posted along a couple of roadsides out west.

A billboard that reads: "Turn in your guns. The government will take care of you."

The media's full of reports of how the billboards are allegedly disrespectful to native Americans.

But does someone's or even some groups' hurt feelings over a billboard alter the truth that a disarmed people are at the mercy of the state when the state has a monopoly of force of arms? It's a circumstance that tyrants have exploited time after time throughout history.

The native Americans are only one example.
