Great article. It makes me sick seeing all these people blasting the Bushmaster on the grounds that it isn't good for home defense or hunting (there are debatably better choices for either). The whole point of the 2nd amendment is not to protect hunting and home defense. It is to protect against a tyrannical government, and for that you need guns designed to kill people.
I brought up that point to my liberal uncle and he dismissed it out of hand, not seeming to realize that if you ban arms until you do get a dictator, by then it is too late. He also conveniently ignores the text of the constitution itself.
