Yes, but I still think Brock's is valid. They're mowing 'em down because they ARE afraid. Afraid of losing their power and what the people will do them. And they'd be even more afraid, if they had guns too.
“Experience should teach us to be most on our guard to protect liberty when the Government’s purposes are beneficent. Men born to freedom are naturally alert to repel invasion of their liberty by evil-minded rulers. The greatest dangers to liberty lurk in insidious encroachment by men of zeal, well-meaning but without understanding.” — James Madison
