I heard that show. Mike Huckabee was on a little later and when Gerald asked him the same question he totally turned the tables on him. He came back with something like "actually I'm wondering why this government doesn't trust the people."
The “Good Germans”, (AKA Liberals) in today's America would have no problem reporting their Gun Owning Neighbors to the proper Authorities, of that I have no doubt.
BTW - Yesterday I was talking to a couple of typical “pay no attention” Americans about the Gun Grabber Obama. They said, you don't really think Obama wants to take your guns, do you? We get it, but it is obvious many others don't.
