The issue of gun control would be easier if we understood what the framers of our constitution had in mind with the Second Amendment. We must educate ourselves regarding the true paramount concern of our forefathers.
Was it really about arming ourselves against each other, or even a rogue government as the NRA and some gun enthusiasts would have us think?
I think research will show that it was about having citizens who could be called up to form a militia if we needed it. We had no standing army when the framers of the Constitution were working on this founding document. Citizens would need to be called up to volunteer their one-shot rifles and guns en masse because of the inefficiency of the single shot.
I believe the Second Amendment is about groups working together to defend the country, not individuals looking for individuals, vigilante groups, revenge seekers or mass murderers.
Think about our Constitution. Do guns really give us life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness? Are guns about religious liberty, free speech or peaceable assembly?
Did our forefathers really intend for us to be secure and strong by walking around armed?
