Being an American , I'm glad we have our rights even though politicians in Washington, NATO and other people want to strip us of our rights to suit
there own selfish need.
Guns will always be in the wrong hands no matter what, you can't stop that. Criminals will do what ever they have too, to obtain weapons to commit
But on the other hand you have average law abiding citizens that own guns and know how to use them for many reasons from protection of home and family
to protecting livestock from predators to hunting and sport shooting.
Sure you get the novice who's a idiot and shouldn't have a weapon of any sort because they aren't capable of the responsibility of owning and
handling of a fire arm or any type of bow.
I myself enjoy shooting and improving my skill with various firearms and Bows, I'm just getting into hunting for food not sport, i have targets on my
property for sport shooting.
I also enjoy going to gun shows and meeting like minded people, I've run across a few crackpots but there's a nut for just about anything. Look how
Many people are attacked or killed with kitchen knives, i hear it all the time, should we outlaw or regulate kitchen utensils also. a car is also a
weapon maybe all transportation should be outlawed also. do you see where this is leading ?
The only government (city, state or federal) regulation there should be are training courses for each type of firearm. so you have a full
understanding of the weapon from shooting to dismantling and preforming maintenance on it and if you can't pass the training you shouldn't be
allowed to own one for your own safety as others..
As far as overthrowing our government there's a time and a place for that, and its not just yet. That's why many politicians want to take our right
to own away so there jobs and criminal intent the power / control that they are trying to hold on too won't be lost. They fear its coming and are
feeling unsafe, so they try to occupy our minds with everything from wars to dept to keeps from rising up.
As our fore fathers have stated it is our right to rise up and take our country back from the tyrants and that's a reason most American cherish the
Second Amendment along with all our rights, its for our own preservation and not the governments. Governments come and go. Maybe the next time around
we will learn from our mistakes, we sure let these criminals run a muck and pull the wool over our eyes, people are starting to wake up one by one.
