Gun Control

As everyone but the dead knows, the Muslim Orlando Massacre has made a lot of news.

As the left fulminates and plays hide the bean, professing to be confused about the registered Democrat Muslim murderer's motives, the usual dishonest gun control debates are front and center again.

The 2nd amendment gives us the right to own guns for the primary purpose of defending ourselves from the government.

The amendment was enacted in 1791. At that time, except for cannons and explosives, guns used by the military and police were, as far as I can tell, the same as those owned by citizens. One could argue that at that time gun ownership was an effective method of defense against governmental tyranny.

In 2016 (and long before) we are no longer effectively armed to defend ourselves from the government. Despite hysterical and disingenuous arguments to the contrary, it is already illegal for citizens to own automatic weapons. We can only own single shot weapons. That is not the case for our federal agencies.

While armed to the teeth federal agencies are a problem they are not, in my opinion, the primary problem with respect to defending ourselves against a tyrannical government.

This is 

It is impossible for citizens to defend against even local governments now.

We have already been effectively disarmed and have been for quite some time.

As I said in my previous post, "Good luck to all of us".
