The government has no right to change the constitution . The second ammendment was put in place to protect us from a tyrannical government, and we might need this right.

You are right in one sense, we should have used it when Bush took away all our privacy rights and sent 5000 of us to die in a lying war of mass deception. That was REAL tyranny. You missed your chance to use your guns to take our country back from that fool.

However , actually the second amendment was put in place for us to protect each other from local threats and not from our government. Our government IS US. I can tell you this...the government that you elect that will come to your home and take your guns will be presided over by a right wing fascist/nationalist zealot and not a left wing socialist!!!

I'm for sure glad we have the second amendment and am fully armed and prepped to protect my family and community from the bands of crazy gun nuts that are likely to soon be roaming our lands. I have no fear that our federal government is a greater danger than the local gun nuts. I also have no expectation that the federal government will be here to protect us from our local crazies. Thus MY support of the second amendment.

You're wrong The 2nd Amendment is in place for defense against enemies foreign and domestic. And that includes the government. And the left is as much about rights usurpation as the right is. Ted Kaczynski was a greater threat than any so called "gun nut". Whatever that addled-minded cliche is supposed to mean.

Do you even know what an assault weapon is? Or do you simply regurgitate what MSNBC spoon feeds you?
