Liberal Lunacy

Liberals would like to say that the second amendment does not allow an individual the right to own a gun but simply allows states to keep a militia, which today is taken care of by the National Guard.

Let’s see what the second amendment actually says;

A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.

The first question we should ask ourselves is; what is a well regulated militia?

Well the one thing its absolutely not, is the National Guard. If the founding fathers intended the second amendment to grant powers to the states or the federal government, they put it in a strange place. Why would the founding fathers give power to the states or federal government in the Bill of Rights? Are not the Bill of Rights for individual freedoms and protection from the government? Yes they are. A well regulated militia is nothing more than individual citizens who can come together bearing arms to protect themselves. And according to the last four words of the amendment, it shall not be infringed.

The first step a tyrannical government must take to oppress its citizenry is to disarm them. The founding fathers in their wisdom recognized this danger and added the second amendment to give citizens a way to protect themselves from a hostile government. The only problem with this today is that government weaponry is far more superior than its average citizen weaponry.

We all have a right to life and we should always be able to protect and defend that life against hostilities.

Guns allow us to do just that.

Preach on. There are several other documents and letters in which the very authors of this document explain their views very precisely. There is no doubt, how men like Madison, Washington, and Hamilton felt about tyrannical governments and the need for citizens to defend themselves against it.

First comes the "sensible gun laws" to include registration (that's how they know which doors to knock on when it comes time for the next step...confiscation)

The halls of freedom are lined with muskets!
