Protection Against Tyranny

Two thirds of American agree that is what the Second Amendment is about (Warning, auto play video at that link):

Two-out-of-three Americans recognize that their constitutional right to own a gun was intended to ensure their freedom.

While there are often wide partisan differences of opinion on gun-related issues, even 54% of Democrats agree with 75% of Republicans and 68% of those not affiliated with either major party that the right to own a gun is to ensure such freedom.

This was a losing issue for them a few months ago. I think it still mostly is. But I’m not sure how much that matters in the current political climate. The only way it’s really a losing issue for them is if we make them lose.

    The wording of the Second Amendment makes this plain: “…being necessary to the security of a free State….”
    I quote the above every time someone asks me why I NEED an assault weapon. When asked to elaborate, I respond, “To kill federal tyrants!” When they scoffingly ask the inevitable question, “How can you hope to match up with a national force that has assault rifles and machine guns?” I coyly reply, “Exactly!” Some of them actually get it, eventually.
