Short version: most of those generals(and admirals) defer

to what Obama wishes, even when they know it's crap.

It won't end well.

Really, NPR?  Nobody there knows enough history to catch this?
But neither the hapless NPR reporter nor the several anti-gun residents of Gonzales interviewed for the story know the actual origin of the phrase, or why its application to the ongoing national debate about gun control and the Second Amendment is entirely appropriate—and historically accurate.

They are blissfully unaware that “Come and take it” is a quote from King Leonidas I of Sparta. At the Battle of Thermopylae in 480 BC, during the second Persian invasion of Greece, Leonidas replied to Xerxes’s demand that the Greeks surrender their arms, “molon labe”—come and take them.
And so are the editors.  Or they know and don't care.

When you keep doing crap like this, it's no wonder people don't trust the cops or the courts.
