It really bothers me when

It really bothers me when people speak about gun control saying that guns must have a "sporting" purpose to be legal and that American Citizens must not own high capacity military style weapons. EXCUSE ME but where in the 2ND AMENDMENT does it say anything about hunting or sport shooting??? OUR RIGHT to bear arms given by the 2nd Amendment is for protection from those who intend to kill us!! Whether it be protection from a thief, murderer, foreign invader or OUR OWN GOVERNMENT, we have a RIGHT to defend ourselves. Now use your common sense here...your powers of you think any of those aforementioned foes who intend us harm, might use a high capacity military style weapon against us? or do you think they will be content to OBEY the gun laws and use a single shot, hunting rifle against us?

My common sense says that the CRIMINAL, FOREIGN ARMY or OUR OWN GOVT is going to use the deadliest weapons they can get their hands on and WE, LAW ABIDING, FREEDOM LOVING CITIZENS will be mowed down like grass! OUR FOUNDING FATHERS, who were truly concerned about and believed in "WE THE PEOPLE" the "LAW ABIDING, FREEDOM LOVING CITIZENS" having the POWER OVER the govt and that the govt existed to provide a SERVICE for us, NOT to tell us what to do. That is why OUR FOUNDING FATHERS, in their GOD given wisdom, put it in OUR CONSTITUTION! Because "WE THE PEOPLE" wanted to be able to defend ourselves! We have a RIGHT to be armed, FULLY ARMED. The govt cannot take that RIGHT away anymore than it can take away our freedom of speech or any other of our RIGHTS proclaimed in our constitution.

The constitution also gives us the RIGHT to OVERTURN or REMOVE BY FORCE an OVER REACHING govt that attempts to legislate our rights away!

Again, I make the point the OUR 2ND AMENDMENT is not about owning a gun for hunting, it is about OUR RIGHT to be as well armed as those who would attempt to take that right away or any other RIGHT.
