Obama isn't interested in disarming "bad guys."

The 2nd Amendment wasn't written for hunting or sports. It was written on the heels of a bloody revolutionary war. In the aftermath of that death, the founders specifically and deliberately deliniated this right. The founders knew exactly what they were writing.
Read the Federalist papers. Read the multitudes of correspondence from the era.
There is no mystery what they were thinking. There was no ambiguity as to why they wanted the citizens armed.
On the heels of a bloody Revolutionary War, the founders wanted the citizens armed against a government so the freedoms won would never again be taken from a tyrannical government.

You may not agree with my gun rights. But my gun rights are the only reason the government hasn't taken your other rights away. Make no mistake about it.
My 2nd Amendment rights put the "teeth" in the rest of the bill of rights.

If they take my guns away, who will fight for your rights later?
Think that one through you left win nutters.
