The Second Amendment is about hunting
The Second Amendment has nothing to do with hunting or personal defense. It has to do with the People of America maintaining a military force for the sole purpose of overthrowing a government that becomes too tyrannical. That is the 100% documented, non-debatable intent of the Second Amendment.
Trench Coxe was one of our nation’s founding fathers. He was a consultant to Thomas Jefferson and his newspapers were instrumental in publishing the truth during a time with British troops had DISARMED the colonial populations and banned all guns. Why did they ban guns? So that the people could not fight back against tyranny, of course.
As Coxe wrote in 1788:
Who are the militia? Are they not ourselves? Is it feared, then, that we shall turn our arms each man gainst his own bosom. Congress have no power to disarm the militia. Their swords, and every other terrible implement of the soldier, are the birthright of an American…. [T]he unlimited power of the sword is not in the hands of either the federal or state governments, but, where I trust in God it will ever remain, in the hands of the people. – Tench Coxe, The Pennsylvania Gazette, Feb. 20, 1788.
That same web page goes on to explain how the British General Howe used gun control to oppress the people:
When occupying Philadelphia in 1778, British General Howe had disarmed the population. As reported in Philadelphia newspapers, General Gage had done the same to the citizens of Boston in 1775.
Stewart Rhodes is a modern-day founding father. He’s an award-winning constitutional scholar and a champion of liberty for all Americans. Here’s what he says about the Second Amendment:
Aybody who tells you that it’s okay and constitutional to take away your M1A, your Garand, your FAL, your HK91, your M4 is a liar. They are lying to you. They are either a useful idiot or a traitor who are lying to you, trying to deceive you to think that it’s about duck hunting, or even personal defense. It’s not even about personal defense. It’s about the military capacity of the American people to overthrow a tyrant. That what it’s about. – Stewart Rhodes, Oath Keepers (www.OathKeepers.org), on the December 19th, 2012 episode of the Alex Jones Show.
