I am a 100% supporter of the 2nd Amendment. However, I do find it a bit ironic that many of the same people that defend the 2nd Amendment on the grounds of protection from tyranny are the same people that continually demand that the military to be bigger and bigger. Think about it.

Do you think patriots have not thought about that? Many in the military are patriots too my friend. Liberal bigots always act like if the militia is ever called into service to defend America the militia will be fighting the military, as though the military is a single, monolithic entity that will follow any order given it by the commander-in-chief. But it is far more likely that even though some in the military will follow the orders of even a traitor like Obama, others will obey the oath they swore to defend the Constitution.

A lot of patriots do think it would be better if our military was smaller, and less of a foreign legion. But that's a different issue.

Paging CNN host Piers Morgan. A new Rasmussen Report shows an overwhelming majority of Americans believe the Second Amendment and gun rights are necessary to protect against tyranny.

Two-out-of-three Americans recognize that their constitutional right to own a gun was intended to ensure their freedom.

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 65% of American Adults think the purpose of the Second Amendment is to make sure that people are able to protect themselves from tyranny. Only 17% disagree, while another 18% are not sure.

In case you missed it...
