There seems to be a lot of confusion about what the Second Amendment really means.  Whether its a check on the government and the last defense of the people should our government decide it does not need to answer to the people any longer, or simply the right to keep firearms for hunting purposes.

Well I have the answer!

So there you have it.  No need to bicker anymore.  It’s clear that the founding fathers wanted to protect the people from a deerpocalypse.  The picture is pretty funny, but of course I’m obligated to note that the picture and my comments are sarcasm.  Too many people out there probably believe stuff like this . . .

I really wish there was a way to inform people about what the Second Amendment really means.  Unfortunately its really hard to explain to most people because, fortunately, we live in a time where we’ve never needed the right.  Where everyone takes their rights for granted and just expects the government to take care of them.

Our founding fathers lived in a much different time.  They took care of themselves and had to protect themselves from governments that simply didn’t care about individual rights.  It’s hard to relate to that now because we live in one of the greatest countries in the world, but the threat is still there.  It always will be.

Just look at most of the middle eastern countries.  Think they feel safe with their governments?  What are your thoughts?
