The Second Amendment Is Not About Hunting

AR-15 SHTF Survival Rifle

In the gun control community there is a popular statement that has been repeated for decades – “Nobody needs a 30 round magazine for hunting.” Another statement is – “Nobody hunts with an AR-15.” Then the classic – “Nobody needs an AR-15 to defend their family.”

What those people do not understand, the Second Amendment is not about hunting, and it only slightly about protecting ones home and family.

The true nature of the Second Amendment is for the people of the United States to be armed to protect themselves from their government and from invaders.

Who was the militia? Every able-bodied male.

Even though congress passed laws changing the militia from armed volunteers to the national guard, the intent of the Second Amendment remains.

The founding fathers wanted to the people to be armed in order to resist a tyrannous government. This is a last ditch effort so the people may protect themselves.

What happens when people are disarmed? Ask the 100 million people Communism killed in the 20th century alone.

The only gun control we need is gun training

As usual, after a mass shooting the liberals go on a feeding frenzy for more gun control. Since most elected officials know that voting for more gun control would be political suicide, they are going after online ammunition sales.

All of this gun control and ammunition control talk is pure nonsense.

What the government needs to provide is gun training, and less gun control laws.

When this great nation was founded, who found the battles that won the war? It was the civilian volunteers. At the time of the revolutionary war, civilian had access to the same weapons that the British carried.

The war of 1812, who went to New Orleans and fought the British? Once again it was the civilian volunteers that answered the call to protect this nation.

The founding fathers subscribed to the idea that every able bodied male over the age of 18 years was a member of the citizen militia. This citizen militia is what the second amendment is all about.
