The Founders of The United States of America knew ......
On the 27th December 2012, Paul Rosenberg, the senior editor of "Random Lengths News", a bi-weekly alternative community newspaper, wrote this:
"According to NRA theology, guns are synonymous with freedom, the very basis of our democracy."
"The NRA is not alone in its misunderstanding, of course. But they are in the vanguard of getting the basis of American freedom utterly and totally wrong." http://www.aljazeera.com/indepth/opinion/2012/12/20121226104857715225.html
This article by Rosenberg, is absolute nonsense. The 2nd Amendment to the Constitution of the United States of America actually has nothing to do with self defense from individual citizens or hunting animals. It is a remedy against a corrupt Federal Government. The Founders of The United States of America knew that in time, any country that elects its leaders by a vote of the masses would be corrupted by those very persons seeking political office. It is just a fact of human nature that the only way to gain power and acceptance is to give things away, especially things that the giver has not personally worked for or saved. This is corruption, and it slowly becomes, in time, the huge "elephant" in the living room. America, unfortunately, is at this point in its history, and a ban on any type of firearms would nullify the ability of a defender of the Constitution to defend himself against a Federal Government that had a monopoly on firearms.
We as Americans must always remember that this nation was not voted into existence. But that is was won by a Revolution fought by a minority of the population against a superior British war machine that had firearms. We must also remember the 1774-75 confiscations of firearms and gunpowder; and the use of the British military to effectuate these confiscations. These firearms and gunpowder confiscations were the "sign" to the Patriots that the Revolution had begun, and that if these confiscations were not stopped, the fight for Freedom was over. Only time will tell if the producers and taxpayers of America will have the courage to stand up to a corrupt Congress, a corrupt Supreme Court, and a corrupt, and Marxist, President. And for this corrupt Obama administration to pretend that gun control legislation is something that will stop insane persons from using firearms to kill innocent persons is pure "Alice in Wonderland" drivel.
