They Carry Guns

The second amendment to the Constitution has nothing to do with hunters but everything to do with the citizenry being armed against a tyrannical government. If the anti-gunners here would read their history they would understand that our forefathers had just fought a war against such a government. In order to keep the citizenry free from another tyrannical government they demanded that a bill of certain rights be added to the Constitution. One was the right to keep and bear arms. The wording maybe questionable but their intent was not. In 1776 people spoke the king's English but keep and bear mean exactly what is says. Look it up. Might I says to the person who posted "While I question the wisdom of practicing open carry in crowded places where it isn't necessary", you should recall what happened in the "crowd"ed Liby's restaurant in Texas were they didn't allow the right to carry, a man drove his truck threw the window of the "crowd"ed restaurant and got out with two 9mm hand guns and killed 22 people. If one person had a gun they could have reduced that number too one. A woman did have a gun but let in her car, in which she regrets, and had the law changed. Now, before the Supreme Court of the United States of America, is a case that may establish, once and for all, whether cities or states can restrict ones right to carry from one state to another. I hope they strike at the heart of the anti-gunners. I sick of their illogical mantra. Those who would give up some liberty for some safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.
