Why do we 'keep and bear arms'? Part 1

Over at WorldNet Daily, Larry Elder lays in to the Demon-rats and dictators (they are more, and more, often the same Demon-rats "we" elected) of this country.

A prominent 20th-century Democrat made the following statement about the purpose of the Second Amendment: "Certainly one of the chief guarantees of freedom under any government, no matter how popular and respected, is the right of citizens to keep and bear arms. … The right of citizens to bear arms is just one guarantee against arbitrary government, one more safeguard, against the tyranny which now appears remote in America but which historically has proven to be always possible."

~~~

The Founding Fathers assumed that any government, including the one they established, could grow into a monster. They argued that only "the people" with a right "to keep and bear arms" could prevent such a tyranny.

~~~

Dictators throughout history sought to disarm their citizenries in order to impose power:

  • Vladimir Lenin said, "One man with a gun can control 100 without one."
  • Mao Zedong said, "Political power grows out of the barrel of a gun."
  • Josef Stalin said: "We don't let them have ideas. Why would we let them have guns?"
  • Adolf Hitler said: "The most foolish mistake we could possibly make would be to allow the subject races to possess arms. History shows that all conquerors who have allowed their subject races to carry arms have prepared their own downfall by doing so."

The Democrat party should re-label itself the Socialist/Facist Party. At least they would demonstrate some integrity for a change.
