I think Eric knows the Constitution is going to have be fought for in order for it to survive, and the gun arguement is the tip of the spear.
The Second Ammendment ranks plenty high in the Constitution, but we are overtaken by communists who are now entrenched in government and media and culture, therefore are empowered to make a very good run at diluting it.
Our showing in this fight will be dependent on the engagement of the people themselves, because we have too few in power who can win it for us alone.
When we submit to a debate on one inalienable right, we put them all on the table. Like it or not.
My Second Amendment rights are inalienable and not subject to debate or negotiation. Neither are yours.
