    That is really quite excellent and eloquently stated.

    Yeah. I think this is the best mainstream piece on the meaning and importance of the second amendment that I've ever seen.

    Hopefully people on the fence will read and learn the importance of the 2nd Amendment the same way the Founding Fathers did when it was included in The Bill of Rights.

    Waiting for "That Day"?

    Well, there isn't gonna be a "that day." The tyranny upon us has been building, one brick at a time. "They" have no plans for "that day." Things are progressing just fine for the people at Treason Incorporated. What matters to them is the slow erosion of our constitutional republic and its equally slow replacement with their administrative regime. Anybody waiting for "that day" will find themselves surrounded by a brick wall of tyranny out of which they will no longer be able to shoot.

    Excellent article that deserves emails to our law makers, friends, families, neighbors, coworkers, etc. - spread the word!

    To those who compare USA to other countries, I want to point out the arguments made by the article is why the Constitution exists for this great country. Just look at other countries around the world that do not have constitution like ours ...
