Rosa Parks: Shortly after Rosa McCauley married her fiance Raymond Parks in 1932, the Parks' routinely held secret activist meetings in their Montgomery, Alabama home.
Whenever they met, there was an armed lookout on the porch and there were usually so many guns on the tables that she frequently didn't have room to set down refreshments.

If you don't like guns, you probably don't know your history. Yep, I said it.
