What I think that many Americans (particularly in my opinion, not claiming its spot on, just mine) and Christians need to think about more is how the 1st Amendment and 2nd Amendment knit together, by design of brilliant Founders who knew history (like we DON"T) to protect freedom of speech and assembly and religion. Too many take the 1st amendment rights (and responsibilities) way to much for granted, and don't realize that words and pens, as powerful as they may be, aren't enough to protect those rights. As long as citizens buy and own guns, the implication is: don't tread on my neighbor, or me. Founders EXPECTED all men to own guns and be able to use them safely and with skill, because standing armies were very mistrusted...why?
