The Reason Why America’s Founding Fathers Gave Us The Second Amendment

 

First is a comment by Alexander Hamilton who was one of three authors of the Federalist Papers which were for the purpose of explaining to the people why the Constitution was written the way it was.  Below that is a link with a two minute news report on Venezuela taking guns away from the citizens, and then offering them to “loyalists” to put down the insurrection.

If the representatives of the people betray their constituents, there is then no recourse left but in the exertion of that original right of self-defense which is paramount to all positive forms of government, and which against the usurpations of the national rulers may be exerted with infinitely better prospect of success than against those of the rulers of an individual State. In a single State, if the persons intrusted with supreme power become usurpers, the different parcels, subdivisions, or districts of which it consists, having no distinct government in each, can take no regular measures for defense. The citizens must rush tumultuously to arms, without concert, without system, without resource; except in their courage and despair.

Pensamiento Peligroso writes the truth as he sees it, and if it upsets you, then it makes you think!
