All of you Non Americans posting on this thread so are oblivious to the truth. Your guns were taken away and made so restrictive to you years ago that
you are not free people, you are subjects to your governments. And some of you in strict gun controlled states while you point out shootings that
happen at time in America you fail to also point out the large numbers of rape, bodily assault, and murder by other than guns that are happening right
now in your country and neighborhood.
The 2nd Amendment of the US Constitution is not about having the right to go hunting. Any hungry man will go hunting anywhere in the world with
whatever is available. The 2nd Amendment is about Free Citizens of a Democratic Republic being armed in their own homes to prevent a Tyrannical
Government from forming and becoming an Evil Monarchy or a Dictatorship. That is the real reason.
When the Colonial English finally sent troops over to establish full taxationable control of the colonies it was common place for garrison troops to
stop any person on the street and interrogate them or take any person from their homes for the mere reason of treason to the king and imprison them
for interrogation or torture and also to take away all firearms in their possession or home.
The 2nd Amendment is about the citizens of the country being armed, even against our own government if need be.
During WWII it became known after the war that the Japanese did not welcome a full scale invasion onto mainland America because they knew that every
American would be armed along with the military.
And as much as some of you dont want to hear this, the reason that Hitler and Chairman Mao of China were able to round up millions of their people for
forced labor and extermination is because both men fought hard for Gun Control, all weapons to be registered, then they fought harder for legislation
to go take those guns from the citizens. Go ask any surviving Israeli who survived Nazi occupied Europe or any Person of China who survived the
The 2nd Amendment is not about hunting it is about checks and balances. And if they can just erase the 2nd Amendment, what will stop them from erasing
and rewriting anything else in the Constitution for the Citizens of America?
