Gittin' Tired Of It!
The writer of the article linked below is “gittin' tired” of trying to beat sense into the granite-hard heads of those who want to DISARM Americans in order to make them DEFENSELESS in the face of the proliferation of ILLEGALLY-owned guns in the hands of the “bad guys.” They think the way to self defense is to make yourself DEFENSELESS and show others you're no threat, which is a STUPID approach. If they think we're unarmed and defenseless, they're going to victimize us. They INSIST on the stupid idea that the Second amendment was not designed to recognize the inherent right of birth to self defense, and to own and use the means to that, a gun. They think the founders meant only to recognize the right of an ORGANIZED militia (which did not exist at the time) to remain ARMED, rather than of the PEOPLE, who are specifically mentioned. That could NOT be true, since there was NOT an “organized militia” in existence, at the time, so they could NOT have meant that. But they reject that, in favor of their preconceived notions, and, like this writer, I'm really getting tired of pointing this out to these stupid people and having it be roundly ignored while they try and disarm me and make me defenseless.
