Congressman Barr compares anti-gun campaigners to the Fabian Society. Named for ancient Roman General Fabius Maximus, the Fabian Society was a British intellectual movement that, according to Barr, embraced their namesake's passive battle strategies. The idea was to "work one more hour" than the opposition rather than have a face-to-face revolution. "That is what the opponents of the Second Amendment are trying to do," says Barr at the 1997 Members Meeting in Seattle, Washington, "bit by bit, little by little, whittle away at the Second Amendment of the Constitution until there is no Second Amendment."
