"Today we need a nation of minute men; citizens who are not only prepared to take up arms, but citizens who regard the preservation of freedom as a basic purpose of their daily life and who are willing to consciously work and sacrifice for that freedom. The cause of liberty, the cause of America, cannot succeed with any lesser effort."
John F. Kennedy on 1-29-1961
The Second Amendment to the United States Constitution guarantees the First Amendment and all the rest of the Amendments. It does this by allowing me to SHOOT any worthless scum who tries to take away my rights, my property or my life without due process of law. If I am a law abiding citizen I can own any stinking pistol or rifle that I want and as many as I want and all the Ammo I want too. Governments are Terrified of this because if they try to steal our rights it will be 1776 all over again. Go ask the British how that worked out.
The Second Amendment has NOTHING to do with hunting and everything to do with self protection. Those who say the wording "right of the people" means the army need to read the First Amendment. The First Amendment uses the same wording. Would the Founding Fathers said that if they thought "right of the people" meant they were the army or militia?
Think about it. They made the First Amendment and then realized "What a great Idea but how do we guarantee it?" So the founding fathers came up with the Second Amendment to guarantee all the rest.
We are supposed to be armed. An armed man or woman is a force to be reckoned with. An unarmed individual is simply a victim. This is why one of the first things every dictator, from Stalin and Hitler to Pol Pot, does is to take away everyone's guns. We need to think about this as we consider how to handle the increasing waves of Radical Islamic Terrorists as well as the never ending line of common criminals trying to kill us.
Look at all the terrorist attacks worldwide. The attacks do not end until a Good Guy with a gun shows up. Why this is so hard for the anti-gun people to believe mystifies me. An armed society is a polite society. It is also a safe society. Think about it. All the attacks always happen in gun free zones. When was the last time you heard about a Terrorist attack at a Gun Show?
While the Federal Government is still trying to figure out who is attacking us, the individual States are have figured it out and they have also figured out the cure. Lots and lots of Good Guys and Gals with guns.
Since 1986 there has been a slow but sure move from no concealed carry permits issued to no concealed carry permit needed. Wow, our constitution at work and it works great. Crime is down, except, of course, in Progressive Democrat controlled big cities that are gun free zones. Again, Think about it.
