People.....I dont care if you have kids in the house - You have knives right? You have things that would be poisonous right?.....YOU NEED TO OWN A GUN.
I dont even care what kind - I dont care if its a pellet gun, thats not true, I do care if you own a pellet gun...In fact, I would laugh at you....
If I asked people who DO NOT own a gun to rank their "Rights" - their Freedoms - the Amendments in order of importance, the 2nd Amendment would be way down the list.
They would list their Freedom of Speech - Their Freedom to Assemble - Their Freedom of Religion....on and on....Somewhere they might remember they have the right to "Bear Arms" if the even realize what that is....
What they DO NOT REALIZE is that when the Government takes away The 2nd Amendment, what will keep them from taking the 1st Amendment?
I honestly believe that the 2nd Amendment should have been our 1st! It is the 2nd Amendment that protects all of your other rights. The 2nd Amendment isnt just to protect your home from a robber - its to protect YOUR RIGHTS FROM THE GOVERNMENT.
Whats the saying:
An ARMED Individual is a CITIZEN - An UNARMED Individual is a SUBJECT
There is a reason Totalitarian Governments first unarm their citizens BEFORE they institute Fascism or Socialism....
Now - I honestly dont think we will ever need to rise up against our Government. But, I could be wrong....You just never know. However, it is IMPERATIVE that the Government KNOW that THE MAJORITY of its Citizens are armed. It keeps them "more honest." The Government would behave differently if the ATF determined that the vast majority of patriots had a home weapon. It just would.
Owning a gun just says that you KNOW your CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS and you are going to exercise them. If you do not EXERCISE them, you will not keep them - simple as that.
If you want to continue speaking freely, you need to own a GUN FIRST....period....
We established however some, although not all its [self-government] important principles . The constitutions of most of our States assert, that all power is inherent in the people; that they may exercise it by themselves, in all cases to which they think themselves competent, (as in electing their functionaries executive and legislative, and deciding by a jury of themselves, in all judiciary cases in which any fact is involved,) or they may act by representatives, freely and equally chosen; that it is their right and duty to be at all times armed;
