Second Amendment Ammo

Adapted from an email circulating on the interweb:
  • Those who hammer their guns into plows will plow for those who do not. ~ Thomas Jefferson (disputed -- who then?)
  • Those who trade liberty for security have neither. ~ Ben Franklin (paraphrased)
  • Free men do not ask permission to bear arms.
  • Only a government that is afraid of its citizens tries to control them.
  • Gun control is not about guns; it's about control.
  • You only have the rights you are willing to fight for.
  • Know guns, know peace, know safety. No guns, no peace, no safety.
  • 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.
  • Guns have only two enemies; rust and politicians.
  • The American Revolution would never have happened with gun control.
  • When you remove the people's right to bear arms, you create slaves.
  • An armed man is a citizen. An unarmed man is a subject.
  • The Second Amendment is in place in case the politicians ignore the others.
  • What part of "shall not be infringed" do you NOT understand?

Incidentally, I have noticed that gun control efforts have focused (in one aspect at least) on innovations in firearms technology. For example, many of the features of the much-maligned "assault rifle" are simply modern enhancements. Why should we be limited only to inventions that occurred before 1880? We don't do that with automobiles, or typewriters computers. Why guns?

  1. I should point out, the American Revolution happened in part, /because/ of gun control.
