I’m not sure if you’re recognizing the meaning behind the “lost ‘em all in a boating accident” phrase. It’s not an attempt to disengage from supporting the 2nd Amendment by any means.

Yes, it is, and here's why: when they come for your guns, it is not time to pretend you don't have them, it is time to USE them. Failing to do that only allows them to get their apparatus in place and terrorize your neighbors. When will you go diving for those lost guns? After the first wave of Americans are gassed in the camps? Too late.

Did our forefathers, at Lexington and Concord, simply tell the British, "We lost our guns in a canoe accident!" ?

I sometimes hear the argument that gassing Americans would be politically incorrect. However the answer is that right now, raids against law-abiding Americans to confiscate their guns is politically incorrect, although just barely. What the left wants is to further demonize gun owners to make it politically correct to grab their guns. It doesn’t help that people feed the image of gun ownership as a fringe issue.
