Ditto on GeorgiaBoy - The 2nd Amendment is the KEYSTONE to the Foundation of Liberty. For without the 2nd, all others are basically indefensable! The SS may be coming, how American citizens react will determine whether they get their foot in the door. There are 100s of thousands of armed Pats that unpalatable as the thought might be, will defend their rights to their dying breath. Serious challenges lie in wait. Either step up to the necessary task or be trampled; there will be no other option or escape. We that believe in the intentions the documents referred to as the US Constitution and the Bill of RIghts will defend them . They don't guarantee life as a cake walk, but allow motivated individuals pursuit opportunities!
