So the liberals, you know our friends who accuse us of being “fear mongers” every chance they get, are now afraid of Donald Trump. And why wouldn’t they be? They call themselves progressives, but as soon as someone comes along and wants to change the way Washington D.C. works they freak out. They act like he’s going to take over America and be a dictator. Now, there’s some MASSIVE irony here. These people act as if they have nothing protecting them from such an event. The irony is the one thing that does protect them from a government forcing it’s will on the people, is something they are very much against. I’m talking about the 2nd amendment. There may even be some liberals who are reading this asking, “What is the 2nd amendment?” And they actually might not know!
So to help out those asking, here it is:
“A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.”
Simple. Short and sweet. Now what a lot of anti-gun folks will do is omit “the right of the people” in that sentence. They’ll say “well its a well regulated militia by the state. That individuals have nothing to do with it.” But that’s not the entire amendment. The right of the people, is, THE INDIVIDUALS!
Well, again. This is simple. Many on the left are freaking out. They’re afraid of Trump taking over America. They constantly tout their fear of his becoming a dictator. (If you ask me, that’s silly.) But if it were true, they’d have no one to blame but themselves. The 2nd amendment, that thing most of them are so against, is the one thing protecting them from it. The rallies and protests are not going to help in such an event.
The founding fathers wrote the 2nd amendment for this exact reason. During the Revolutionary War, the British were trying to take the Patriots guns away. They realized how easy it would be to defeat an enemy who couldn’t defend itself.
This is the exact reason most conservatives are labeled “gun nuts.” We understand the value of the 2nd amendment.
