Recently, one of the bleeding heart liberals, who infest the media and aired his views on the pages of the Corpus Christi Caller-Times, tried to connect the second amendment with the cap-and-ball technology of the 1700s when the original amendment was written.
No, the founding fathers didn’t write the 2nd amendment to freeze our basic rights of protection against an intrusive government to medieval technology. What an idiot.
Fast forward to the 2000s, clearly, what our founding fathers meant was for the civilian population (militia) to remain as well armed as the government so that they could meet the threat to their freedoms on a level playing field.
There are many references by our founding fathers that directed the need of diligence among the militia (population) to balance power and ward against domination by a central government.
Go take a basic college course in American history. Keep in mind that what the recent despots of history, Stalin, Hitler, Mao, Pol Pot, Castro, the Mexican government, and whomever the leftist liberals choose to worship have in common is gun control.
Without gun control, their psychotic need for domination is never possible, nor will it be here in the United States.
