let's keep the discussion simple, so that even a simpleton can comprehend it.
the 2nd amendment to the constitution of the united states is not about protecting "hunting rifles." it is about resisting tyranny, and the oppression, violence and carnage wreaked upon a people by their government.
it was the framers intent that an armed people could resist such oppression, could fight against governmental murder.
think for just a moment, if you are capable. (this addressed to democrats, liberals and leftists of all stripes.)
do you think that pol phot could have slaughtered his people in the killing fields, that hitler could have enforced the holocaust, that mao could have loosed his red brigades upon millions, or that lenin, stalin, and a whole host of red successors could have instituted and administered the gulag killing and labor camps, ... , that any of them could have unleashed death and mayhem as they did against an armed and jealous people, determined to protect their lives and liberty?
do you really?
and, friends, when you evaluate what is at stake in the right to own, possess and bear arms in your defense against the depredations of government, understand fully that barack hussein obama does not think so either.
can you bring yourselves to comprehend his motives in seeking "gun control," in seeking the confiscation of the very weapons necessary to contend with his armed minions, on an equal footing.
