A great speech, I can only hope there are many more like this man!
Trueman, you really need to wake up and look around you. Reading your comments is very disconcerting. I can only hope there aren't many others who
share such an ignorant view. What exactly do you think the government is taking one protection after another away from us for? Do you think the DHS
just wants to kick everyone's door in and have a BBQ??
And regardless, the right to own guns is about more than just defending against our governent. Do you think there are no other countries/governments
in the world who may pose a threat of invasion, be it now or in the future? The obvious rebuttal may be along the lines of "who would be stupid enough
to challenge the military might of the USA" etc, but people and countries alike are opportunistic.
It could be something unexpected, such as a natural event(a CME for example) taking out much or all of our electrical grid, which could weaken us
enough that an invasion would pose far less risk. Even the targeting of US military and GPS satellites could remove a substantial percentage of our
advantage against an invading force. With an ever growing number of space-capable nations, it's not at all out of the realm of possibility.
I have never hunted, but I will never be without a gun. I choose to excercise this right as much for the protection of my family as for that of my
fellow Americans, and always with great respect for those who have fought and died for us to have this right.
