  •  The 2nd Amendment is a tool (0+ / 0-)

    the Republican political establishment and they MIS-READ IT ON PURPOSE.    The 2nd Amendment only protects gun ownership for "members of the militia".  That, today, would be the National Guard.  If gun owners want to JOIN the National Guard, then they are protected by the Amendment.  Otherwise, the Amendment DOES NOT PROTECT GUN OWNERSHIP.  

    The U. S. has the highest rate of gun ownership in the world --- an average of 88.8 guns per 100 people.  War torn Yemen, the second highest, with 54.8 guns per 100 residents, while Iraq has 34.2.  There are 14 million active hunters in America today, or 1 out of 18 people.  IS the American gun ownership about HUNTING?  Bushmaster once promoted their rifle in a magazine ad that showed the menacing weapon under the words: "Consider your man card reissued".  If you need a weapon to prove your manhood, there wasn't anything there to begin with!
