To The Daily: Just a few lines to express my disappointment at how little the people in this country seem to know about our Constitution. The right to keep and bear arms, our Second Amendment, has nothing to do with hunters or hunting. It was put there to ensure our government may never disarm the citizens, in case we ever need to take the country back from an oppressive regime.
The Constitution has been devalued for decades now. It's in shreds. Now we're told that hunters don't need assault weapons, and that's true. We keep our weapons so, in case the government tries to control us too much, we can fight back. That's the real premise of this question. This new push to disarm the population is scary to me, having seen Castro disarm the citizens of Cuba soon after taking power.
Don't be fooled. Many of the commentators on TV hit the nail on the head, talking about the epidemic of prescription drugs being used nowadays. Many of these drugs do not exist in nature, not in these forms. The lists of side effects are alarming, and the reasons they even exist is simply patent rights, and therefore profit.
Millions of Americans own arsenals at home, and haven't killed anyone, nor do they have any desire to do so. My bet is this kid was on some of these drugs, but I realize I'm stepping on big toes saying this.
