The fact is, the 2nd Amendment does not exist (just) for hunting, and it does not exist (just) for personal self defense. It exists so that free citizens can deter and/or fight back against their own tyrannical government. And with a President who thinks he can indefinitely detain or even ASSASSINATE U.S. citizens without pressing charges; with drones circling our skies and an internet that may soon no longer be free of censorship, we need our right to bear arms now more than ever.
So what do we Republicans do? We nominate a man who has no beef with Obama's Kill List, no problem with the NDAA or the PATRIOT Act, and no problem with any gun laws currently on the books. Bravo, Republicans, Bravo!
