Venezuela Is Why The Founding Fathers Gave Us The Second Amendment.
The second amendment is NOT ABOUT HUNTING. If you read it right from the constitution it states the following:
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.
This right was drafted in a time, Americans just got done fighting for their independence from the British. The founders knew full well, what it was like to live under a government that was not for and by the people, rather a dictator or in their day King George the III.
We see examples in 2017 in other countries that illustrate the importance and value of this constitutional right.
There is no greater example now than the communist country of Venezuela. A country that has become so poor under the authoritarian communist dictatorship, the people have resorted to eating pets and zoo animals.
But let’s look at literally one of the first things the government of Venezuela did when dictator Hugo Chávez came to power. I know it sounds Cliché but: “they took away the guns”. This is of course what Hitler, Stalin, Mao & Mussolini did. This unjust balance of power, ensures the government can murder the citizens, and the ruling class stays in power. It is this simple concept the founders had in mind when they decided to allow citizens to be armed.
Taking away the guns, takes away the populace’s ability to over throw a government, no matter how unjust and reckless that government is to the people.
From starving mothers and children debating whether or not to turn to cannibalism, to large armored police trucks running over and killing demonstrators, even liberals should agree the second amendment is necessary. This is EXACTLY what the framers had in mind when they wrote the words “necessary to the security of a free State”…
Left Wing activist are now buying guns in record numbers. Make no mistake it is not because they believe in the constitution, it is because they see it as a means of gaining power. This is why Democrat politicians often own guns, and massive security details, while at the same time push for legislation against law abiding citizens. Once socialist seize power, they do not want anyone else changing their policies, and this is why they want to ban guns, for the same reason Venezuela did it.
I leave you with this:
