The Founders and the 2nd Amendment

2ndAmendment-300x162

The widespread ownership of firearms helps to preserve freedom, usually without the need for armed violence. When politicians limit or harass gun ownership, the threat is far wider than the threat to guns alone. By reducing the number of citizens who are armed, gun control emboldens the authoritarian politicians to control everything else we do, thereby imperiling freedom generally.  See this wonderful post by Rob Natelson on the meaning of the 2nd Amendment.
