The advocates of gun control would like you to believe that the world would be so much safer if everyone just gave up thier guns. Of course not one of these advocates has ever said one word about the state having to give up its weapons. Actually these advocates believe that police should have the latest in bada$$ed weapons on the market. So let us learn what happens in history when a civilian population becomes unarmed, and the state keeps its weapons. In 1929, the Soviet Union established gun control. From 1929 to 1953, about 20 million dissidents, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated. In 1911, Turkey established gun control. From 1915 to 1917, 1.5 million Armenians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated. Germany established gun control in 1938, and from 1939 to 1945, a total of 13 million Jews and others who were unable to defend themselves were rounded up and exterminated. China established gun control in 1935. From 1948 to 1952, 20 million political dissidents, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated Guatemala established gun control in 1964. From 1964 to 1981, 100,000 Mayan Indians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated. Uganda established gun control in 1970. From 1971 to 1979, 300,000 Christians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated. Cambodia established gun control in 1956. From 1975 to 1977, one million people, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated. Are you still sure the an unarmed civilian population with a weaponized state is such a good thing?

Those are exacly the kinds of things our founding fathers had in mind when they constitutionally guaranteed our right to bear arms.

They shouldn't have to reinterpret the constitution when it is spelled out so plainly as a guaranteed right. That is just meddling.
