Although this is simplistic (and perhaps needlessly provocative) rhetoric, it is absolutely true by the Forefathers' intent.

The right to "keep and bear arms" is not about letting people own guns strictly intended for hunting (a silly notion). Rather, it is about keeping arms potent enough to forever dissuade the government from becoming a tyrant. This means at LEAST semi-auto, relatively out-dated assault rifles (i.e. SKS, CAR15, IMI Galil, etc.) and paramilitary sidearms (i.e. Beretta 92F with double-stack magazine capacity).

The concept of an empowered armed citizenry pre-dates the US Constitution by at least 100 years, and was firmly rooted in British Common Law before the Colonies were even established. Therefore, the idea of an armed and well-regulated militia did not really originate with the Founders, and is much older than most anti-gun folks assume.

Implicit in the right to keep and bear arms is that the level of firepower needs to be significant enough that the government would be hard pressed to put down an armed popular uprising.

While some would argue that there is no legitimate purpose for high capacity magazines and assault-style weapons in light of the Newtown tragedy, this assertion has no basis in historical or constitutional fact.

The much left-maligned "Guns don't kill people. People kill people," slogan has more truth in it than the Left would care to admit. The Newtown Tragedy was not a gun tragedy, but onw of mental illness. The real challenges for our America are mental illness, the drug culture, loss of youth identity, and poverty and gang violence fueled by a broken education system. Guns are not blameless, but neither are they the root cause. Focusing on guns is as foolish as treating the fever of pneumonia with aspirin and doing nothing else.

When will the government start a DIPLOMA buy-back program for people who are illiterate and unemployable after 13 years in public education?

How about SANITY, FERTILITY, or MORALITY buy-backs?

Anti-Gun Liberals, WAKE UP! Any politician who promises gun control that pleases you is just paying you lip service because you will be stupid enough to vote for him/her again next election. The roots of the Second Amendment are firm, and the country would cease being the USA without it. If you are truly smarter that Conservatives and more progressive, you will look beyond guns, and focus on the real root causes of violence in America.

I'm talking about the government going haywire. We'll have time for that. For what you're talking about there are items other than guns that can be very effective and just as lethal.
