It is popular for authoritarians to claim that the second amendment is out-dated, that it refers only to fire arms and that it doesn’t even apply to the individual but to the National Guard. These people also couch the debate over the second amendment in terms of ‘reasonable’ control. All of this is straw man, and it is high time we set these straw men on fire and kick the ashes in the face of those who made them.

Any way you slice it, advocating that you be disarmed is a violation of your Natural Right to self-defense.

BTW: would you have trusted the German Storm Troopers? Then why do you trust anyone in these militarized police forces?
OH! And just in case you don’t think anything like what happened in Germany could ever happen here – you’re wrong! Because it already has, and it will again:
And THAT is what the 2nd Amendment is all about!
