Learn what Shindler's List failed to show - private owners of firearms CAN stand up to tyranny. This should be a powerful testimony to the Right to Keep and Bear Arms [url]http://www.nbc.com/nbc/other_nbc_shows/uprising/[/url] NBC is showing UPRISING next sunday. THEY DID WHAT THE NAZIS NEVER EXPECTED THEY FOUGHT BACK The heroic true stories of Jewish resistance fighters who battled the Nazis in the Warsaw Ghetto during World War II are dramatized for the first time in the compelling, four-hour miniseries "Uprising." Featuring a star-studded cast, the action-packed epic is drawn from accounts of survivors, and directed, produced and co-written by award-winning feature filmmaker Jon Avnet ("Red Corner," "Fried Green Tomatoes"). After Germany invades Poland in 1939, the Germans decree that 350,000 Warsaw Jews be forcibly moved into a cordoned area known as the Warsaw Ghetto. Watching their people forced into slave labor, led to the brink of starvation and even deported to death camps, a small group of courageous Jewish citizens band together to create a unified, armed resistance against their German oppressors. Against impossible odds, they hold off the German army longer than the entire country of Poland, determined to live with honor - and if need be, die with honor - while lighting the torch for resistance in the occupied territories. This remarkable true story of triumph, tragedy and courage airs Sunday, November 4th and Monday, November 5th on NBC. [img]http://www.nbc.com/nbc/other_nbc_shows/uprising/r4_c1_462x81.jpg[/img]

I hope they will mention how Schindler and others were in the business of stockpiling weapons after Hitler confiscated them (after a national registration). Then the jews in the ghetto used homemade bombs, molotov cocktails and whatever weapons they could find to hold of the German army for over a month.

They'll spin it to show that it was ok then, but guns are bad now.

You all need to read Unintended Consequences. Irwin Mann is bad ass. It's time to feed the hogs!

Agreed, Unintended Consequences had a large chapter on the Warsaw Ghetto uprising, very well written and gripping.

Hopefully the message will get out even if Hollyweird butchers it some.

It looks good. Well see how they spin it though. BTW, The Unintended Consequences chapter on that was a great read(like the rest of the book). In fact after reading that book, I went out and bought my first gun(a 10/22)
