Nugent On Gun Control

25 Aug

If you haven’t seen this interview with Sweaty Teddy on the 2nd Amendment, he’s right on point.

I have the right to defend my life, liberty, and possessions by any means necessary.  Period.

I’ve written it before, the the 2nd Amendment gives us the right to bear arms.  The ‘arms’ of the time of the Constitution were hand guns, muskets, cannons, and swords.  And, since the Founders were not in a vacuum, they knew that those weapons had been developed over many years and newer, more powerful weapons would appear on the scene.

So, in the 1780’s we gave OURSELVES the right to bear arms to protect our life, liberty, and possessions (as well as that of others).

The Constitution didn’t give us that right; we already had it.  The Constitution confirmed that right!
