The Founding Fathers knew exactly what they were doing when they passed the 2nd Amendment. It wasn’t about militias as a military force, because those would have fallen under the power of the Federal Government – A.K.A. The Army. It was about ensuring that each and every individual citizen would have the right to a weapon of their own, a weapon with sufficient firepower to enable the bearer to present violent force equivalent to that which a soldier would employ; force which the government would be powerless to take away. The 2nd Amendment makes all the other rights possible. Without the right to bear arms, America would cease to exist as a free nation.
Just a few images pulled from the internet (especially Facebook) to illustrate my point. I’ll be brief.
