Lets be clear... Our founding fathers were not talking about muskets, they were talking about arms. It's easy to translate the Second Amendment in several directions when you are placing your ideology ahead of rational thought. It's when you read the other Amendments and how they were written, the Right of people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed is very clear. Militia? We are all part of a Militia were our Freedoms, and the future of our Country is considered. Gun grabbers want people to believe that by simply controlling guns, America will be a much safer place... They could not be more wrong. Gun control doesn't control guns that are obtained illegally, or are unregistered so that argument goes out the window. Criminals retain their guns. Criminals, and their crime increase when people cannot defend themselves. Gun control is about usurping people's Freedoms... About controlling people. Controlling Law abiding citizens in particular... The majority. Our Founders had the foresight to know that tyrants will always threaten Democracy and it's the reason they authored the 2A in the first place. The purpose of the 2A is keep power in the hands of the people, to allow them the Liberty to enjoy their Freedoms without becoming enslaved to a select few who profess to know what is best for them, but truly do not have their interests in mind. Power in the hands of the people give tyrants pause. The loony gun control nuts come out from under their rocks every time a tragedy like Columbine, or Sandy Hook arises for one reason... Not because they are outraged, but to further their tyrannical agenda. They will tell you how you must sacrifice your Freedoms for the common good, and many with compromised emotions will agree with them. In times of tragedy people need to take a step back and allow rational thinking to rule the day... Not knee jerk emotions. They will tell you that nobody needs this gun because it looks scary, or that gun because it accepts 30 round magazines, etc... It's all a load of crap. Make no mistake... Their endgame is always the same, disarm the American public so their own ideology will be allowed to fester and grow without fear of repercussions from those who willingly handed away their Freedoms while they were compromised by their emotions... The problem is that once you arbitrarily hand away your Rights and Freedoms, it isn't so easy to get them back. And once you let tyranny in the door, it's difficult to get it to leave... Especially when you are defenseless.
