Bret Stephens & Second Amendment – Fundamentally Wrong | National Review

Regardless of what the screeching progressive left tells you, you need to understand ONE thing about our 2nd Amendment rights. The 2nd Amendment was NOT put in place because of hunting, and the argument that the founding fathers couldn’t foresee AR-15s and AK-47s and didn’t intend people to have military arms is a strawman because ALL weapons at the time were military weapons.

The 2nd Amendment was put in place primarily to serve as the last line of defense against a tyrannical government. Do I need to repeat that for you? Let it sink in for a moment.

The British kept trying to confiscate colonists’ weapons so they couldn’t resist the king. A defenseless populace could not resist the oppression of the government. After winning the war, the founders were determined NEVER to allow that to be the case in America again, which is why they codified their hard-earned knowledge in the 2nd Amendment.

So, as politicians begin talking about gun control again, limiting your rights to keep and bear arms, and as the democrats are now finally OPENLY discussing confiscating your weapons, you are seeing the 21st century manifestation of the King of England and the British Parliament here on American shores.

The only difference between the 1700s and now is that the oppressors are on THIS side of the ocean.



Bret Stephens is fundamentally wrong about gun rights …
