Quote of the Day: 2011-02-03

Today’s Quote of the Day comes from JayG, of MArooned.

The Second Amendment has never been about hunting. [E]ven self-defense against goblins is a secondary consideration. The Second Amendment is about arming the people so that the government does not start rounding folks up – be they journalists, dissidents, or left-handed square dance callers. It’s about giving the people – we, the people – the tools to resist tyranny in its many forms.
[minor edit to maintain family friendliness]

Truth. You should go read the whole thing.

END OF LINE

Just like the people who move into an area with a HOA, and complain they cant put up a flag pole, when you agreed to the contract, you gave your word. The Second Amendment has never been about hunting. Hell, even self-defense against goblins is a secondary consideration. The Second Amendment is about arming the people so that the government does not start rounding folks up – be they journalists, dissidents, or left-handed square dance callers. It’s about giving the people – we, the people – the tools to resist tyranny in its many forms. It’s not about putting venison (tasty, tasty venison) in freezers, or “sporting” reasons – it’s about the very grim, serious, real task of keeping the standing army at bay through widespread personal arms. We might not have the tanks, but there are sufficient hunters, handgunners, and other 2A enthusiasts to resist should the unthinkable happen.
