The wise Walter Williams asks a single question that should settle the gun debate:
“Are we under any less a threat of tyranny from Washington than we were in 1787?”
Obviously, the threat of tyranny has increased infinitely since the long-lost days when the federal government was small and presided over by great men whose objective was the advancement of liberty. Consequently, we need the Second Amendment more now than ever. Ominous threats of executive orders to restrict it prove that the day the Founding Fathers prepared us for has come.
“The beauty of the Second Amendment is that it will not be needed until they try to take it.”
Hopefully we still have enough character to make use of the tools Jefferson and his colleagues left for us.
On a tip from Varla.
