An armed man is a citizen. An unarmed man is a subject
Gun control is not about guns; it's about control.
Free men do not ask permission to bear arms
You only have the rights you are willing to fight for. Know guns, Know Peace, Know Safety. No Guns, No Peace, No Safety.
Guns have only two enemies: Rust and Politicians
You don’t shoot to kill, you shoot to stay alive
Assault is a behavior, not a device. 64,999,987 firearms owners killed no one yesterday
When you remove the people's right to bear arms, you create slaves.
Only a government that is afraid of its citizens tries to control them.
The Second Amendment (Amendment II) to the United States Constitution is the part of the United States Bill of Rights that protects the right of the people to keep and bear arms. It was adopted on December 15, 1791, along with the rest of the Bill of Rights.
There are several versions of the text of the Second Amendment, each with slight capitalization and punctuation differences, found in the official documents surrounding the adoption of the Bill of Rights. One such version was passed by the congress, which reads: A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed. Another version is found in the copies distributed to the states, and then ratified by them, which had this which had this capitalization and punctuation: A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the People to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.
The United States Constitution The Second Amendment is in place in case the politicians ignore the others. What part of 'shall not be infringed' do you NOT understand?

The Founding Fathers on the Second Amendment "I ask, Sir, what is the militia? It is the whole people. To disarm the people is the best and most effectual way to enslave them."George Mason - Co-author of the Second Amendment during Virginia's Convention to Ratify the Constitution, 1788 Firearms stand next in importance to the constitution itself. They are the American people's liberty teeth and keystone under independence … from the hour the Pilgrims landed to the present day, events, occurences and tendencies prove that to ensure peace security and happiness, the rifle and pistol are equally indispensable … the very atmosphere of firearms anywhere restrains evil interference — they deserve a place of honor with all that's good."George Washington - First President of the United States "To preserve liberty, it is essential that the whole body of the people always possess arms and be taught alike, especially when young, how to use them."Richard Henry Lee - American Statesman, 1788
Two recent Supreme Court decisions, District of Columbia v, Heller (2008) and McDonald v. Chicago (2010), interpreted the Second Amendment. In Heller, the Court ruled that the Second Amendment protects an individual's right to possess a firearm (unconnected to service in a militia) and to use that arm for traditionally lawful purposes, such as self-defense within the home. Additionally, the Court enumerated several longstanding prohibitions and restrictions on firearms possession that it found were consistent with the Second Amendment. In McDonald, the Court determined that the Second Amendment limits state and local governmental authority to the same extent that it limits federal authority.

During WWII the Japanese decided not to invade America because they knew most Americans were ARMED! With guns, we are 'citizens;' without them, we are 'subjects'. You won't see this data on the US evening news, or hear politicians disseminating this information. Guns in the hands of honest citizens save lives and property and, yes, gun-control laws adversely affect only the law-abiding citizens The purpose of fighting is to win. There is no possible victory in defense. The sword is more important than the shield, and skill is more important than either. The final weapon is the brain. All else is supplemental. Why Fight?
SWITZERLAND ISSUES EVERY HOUSEHOLD A GUN! SWITZERLAND'S GOVERNMENT TRAINS EVERY ADULT THEY ISSUE EACH A RIFLE. SWITZERLAND HAS THE LOWEST GUN RELATED CRIME RATE OF ANY CIVILIZED COUNTRY IN THE WORLD!!! IT'S A NO BRAINER! DON'T LET OUR GOVERNMENT WASTE MILLIONS OF OUR TAX DOLLARS IN AN EFFORT TO MAKE ALL LAW ABIDING CITIZENS AN EASY TARGET. Take note my fellow Americans, before it's too late! The next time someone talks in favor of gun control, please remind them of this history lesson. SWITZERLAND
