The liberal media and the political left constantly babble about the Second Amendment, the right to bear arms, being about hunting and home protection. Why can they not understand that the purpose of the Second Amendment is to enable the citizens of the United States to protect themselves against and to overthrow a tyrannical and oppressive federal government?

Why did the British Army march from Boston to Lexington and Concord in April 1775, which precipitated the first gun battle between the colonists and the British? It was to seize the firearms, cannons and gun powder of the colonists. It was to disarm them and prevent them from defending themselves against British tyranny. The federal government is now marching as did the British army and with the same intent.

These men support your right to bear arms: George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, James Madison and James Hamilton.

These men oppose it: Adolf Hitler, Fidel Castro, Joseph Stalin, Vladimir Lenin and Barack Obama.
