Homebaked Shakespeare

"To be, or not to be--that is the question:
Whether 'tis nobler in the mind to suffer
The slings and arrows of outrageous fortune
Or to take arms against a sea of troubles
And by opposing end them."

Thinking of these lines tonight. Here's what they mean to me: Taking the "arms" figuratively to mean fighting back with political action, should I do something to help change the [expletive] lack of gun control laws in the country? Or do I just sit tight and pray that things get better on their own? It seems so obvious when you break it down like that, doesn't it? Hamlet knew that passivity sucks, and I guess I do too.
