Second Amendment’s Original Intent

Be not duped by certain politicians on their latest “gun control” crusade. They have almost successfully diverted everyone’s attention from the true purpose of the Second Amendment by saying such things as: “large capacity magazines are not needed for hunting”, or “you don’t need thirty bullets to kill a deer”, etc.

The original intent of the Second Amendment to the US Constitution is to ensure the citizens of this nation can arm themselves with firearms (individually or as part of a “Militia”) that can be used against a tyrannical government, if need be. That being so, there is also an implied intent of the amendment that citizens be able to arm themselves with firearms comparable in firepower and rate of fire to what the forces of a tyrannical government will. We must be careful in our political discourse to not be duped by the left’s too-clever-by-half attempt to portray the quintessentially important Second Amendment as a way to protect hunting or target shooting. Those two purposes, though important, are strictly ancillary to the primary purpose. The Second Amendment is actually the guarantor of all the other Amendments and even the Constitution itself. All of us must keep our focus, for the Nation’s sake.

On an allied note, several online sources report that the federal government, primarily some sub-agencies of the ominously large Department of Homeland Security, have procured over one billion dollars in ammunition. One article stated that the majority of the cartridges are for pistols and have hollow-point expanding bullets, which are intended for killing someone


quickly. Such ammo is good for neither target practice nor for normal service carry. This, if true, suggests someone is planning to mount a deadly assault on a whole bunch of other folks. Wonder who that might be?

there should be hearings on the Homeland Security’s intention with all that ammunition.

Think about it – then act…
