We hope that all of our readers are having a great (and safe) 4th of July weekend, so far.  As you’re celebrating the day and enjoying that barbeque, don’t forget what it took the Founding Fathers to win this country from the British Crown–and keep it.  A big part of the ongoing freedom equation is the Second Amendment (also written 2nd Amendment), which was designed to guarantee the right of private citizens of the United States to be armed with tactical firearms designed specifically for FIGHTING other human beings.

The Second Amendment  to the Constitution of the United States of America was designed to allow us as a people, a citizenry, to be able to successfully stand and FIGHT against agents of the Government if it ever becomes tyrannical and/or oppressive towards us.  In other words, it was designed to guarantee our ability to fight against our own standing Army and police forces, if, God forbid, we have to do so.   The Second Amendment has absolutely nothing to do with hunting or sporting uses of firearms.  Whether or not a firearm has any hunting or sporting use is absolutely irrelevant to the Second Amendment.  The Second Amendment is about FIGHTING, pure and simple.  It’s about being able to fight for our freedom using firearms that are commensurate technologically and capability-wise with what army infantry soldiers and law enforcement personnel have at their respective disposals.  That means military-grade tactical firearms. The firearms that the citizens of the United States own/keep must be equal in capability to what the Government owns/keeps, thus maintaining the balance of firepower, if you will. That is the purpose (and spirit) of the Second Amendment, and the protector of all of our freedoms under the Bill of Rights.

So, enjoy the rest of your July 4th weekend, and keep the above in mind as you do.

Oh, and don’t drink and drive.
