I don’t particularly like or dislike guns. They’re simply tools, no different really than cars or hammers, and I haven’t ever had much use for them. That said, the left makes me want to go out and buy some. Without guns, there’s no defense against hordes of criminals or an all powerful, totalitarian state, both of which could occur after an economic collapse. The founders were right, and no one except criminals and statists need fear an armed citizenry. I feel the need to be prepared for the worse.

I think you’re right but it’s a personal decision and a serious one. I don’t think that it’s a necessity to own a firearm to appreciate and support the 2nd Amendment and what it stands for. But that appreciation becomes more personal when you do. FWIW one never knows when the worst will happen to them and the tool you’ll really need is a gun. It is certainly time to let the government know they’re stepping over the line though IMO.

Perhaps I should add that you can join the NRA right now, for a year, for $25 and you don’t have to own a gun. The swelling numbers of their membership sends an unmistakable message.

Relying solely on government for the defense of your family is the most shameful level of welfare dependency.
