Perhaps we should learn from a people who have been there, and done that…
“Americans Never Give Up Your Guns“
(click above to read one Russian’s thoughts on gun control)
And when you hear people say things like “No one needs an AK-47 to hunt”, you should be thinking, “well, duh”.
The right to bear arms is about the right to protect yourself, your property, and your family against a tyrannical government. When the states added the second amendment to the constitution, they were not thinking about hunting. They had just fought a bloody revoluitonary war to be free from a government that exercised unrestrained power over them…THAT is what drove them to want that protection embodied in the constitution of this country.
What is tyranny?
noun, plural tyr·an·nies.
1. arbitrary or unrestrained exercise of power; despotic abuse of authority.
2. the government or rule of a tyrant or absolute ruler.
3. a state ruled by a tyrant or absolute ruler.
4. oppressive or unjustly severe government on the part of any ruler.
5. undue severity or harshness.
Tyrannical leaders lull their people slowly to sleep while grabbing power they were not intended to have. We are used to the balance of powers actually keeping that from happening. But don’t be fooled into thinking that tyranny can’t happen here, just like it has happened in so many countries before. Striking down the 2nd amendment should not even be a consideration.
I have added PJTV to my “Worthy Websites” in my sidebar. You can be a paid subscriber, but there’s great free stuff to be had, and that’s what I go there for.
Joe Hicks is one of my favorite contributors, but there’s gobs of great stuff in there that might help us all get our political heads on straight and see things how they actually are, not how we “HOPE” they are. There’s pure entertainment too, as the site is a “conservative entertainment” site.
Thanks to the Crack Emcee at The Macho Response for turning me on to the site, and to Panda Bear MD for turning me on to The Macho Response. (The Macho Response can get a little raw at times-so people who might be offended by language and such, and TMI kids, and Luke should maybe stay out-but he’s a great read. Panda doesn’t get a link cuz he never posts on his blog!)
