A simple question must be asked: Would people be buying all of these weapons if they truly trusted their government?
And a corollary to that is are they buying all of these weapons only to hand them over?
For the first time, I am hearing people talking about the REAL meaning of the 2A, and that is a good thing. The 2A was NEVER about hunting or sporting purposes; it was and is about preventing tyranny Judge Andrew Napolitano (one of my favorites) recently had a column entitled “The right to shoot tyrants, not deer”.
The right to shoot tyrants, not deer
Agreed. Of course it was never about hunting. I just included that in my rant. The 2A has always been about self-defense against tyranny in the plainest terms. I could quote numerous statements, publications, personal diaries, correspondence between our Founding Fathers, but it be one of those long lists of URL's we all get tired of seeing.
