Newt Gingrich says centuries of Irish rebels were wimps

Here's the video. It's his speech to the National Rifle Association convention. After inflicting his Presidential campaign stump speech on an audience that admittedly deserved such a fate, he decided to address the actual topic of relevance to the NRA and said, inter alia:

When the British troops arrived at Lexington and Concord in April 1775 expecting to force the peasantry into surrender, something they had done quite well in Ireland, Scotland, Wales, and England, they suddenly found they weren't up against peasants, they were up against Americans.

Later in the same speech, Newt promised that a President Gingrich will seek a global treaty establishing a human right to keep and bear arms.
