Thomas Jefferson in his writtings about the 2nd Amendment discussed the fact that the citizens should be able to have the same kinds of weapons the government would be using if they came for our guns. What use would the Amendment be if we couldn't use what the government has to use against us, it would be like trying to defend yourself with a flintlock against a M-16, our one shot against their 30 rd. magazine. No one will honestly talk about the reason we would even want a AR-15 with a 30 rd. mag.. It's so we wouldn't be out gunned by those protecting the Capital bldg. as we were going up the steps to get to some leftists office to "remove" him from the government. Not that we want to put 30 rds. into a deer to make sure he's dead.

Heck, if it'd take you thirty rounds to down one buck, then you need to use that high magazine capacity at the RANGE, son. :) Anyhow, I think I'd prefer an accurized .30-06 or .308 bolt gun anyhow. Well ok, I would not turn down an M1 or an M1a (civilian M14 lookalike, much like the AR-15 is a civilian M-16 lookalike). One aimed round on target beats a half dozen 3round bursts in the general direction anyhow. :)

Actually, there are two salient points about the 2d AMendment: one is that the whole citizenry has some responsibility to protect common liberties and social order, especially under the direction of a liberty-honoring and law-honoring government; the other is that the citizenry needs to be able to protect itself when the government goes bad.

Milwaukee Country Sheriff David A. Clarke Jr. and Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett joined Piers Morgan on his show to discuss the sheriff’s radio ad, which urges citizens to consider taking a firearms safety course because “simply calling 911 and waiting is no longer your best option.” Clarke’s point was that with officers laid off and furloughed, police might not be able to respond as quickly as needed. Thus, citizens may want to consider giving themselves another option: learn how to responsibly use a firearm for self-defense. This, of course, doesn’t fly with Morgan, a staunch gun-control advocate, or Mayor...
