    Importance of the 2nd Amendment is not about hunting, or target shooting.

    Here is an example of historical importance, representing the true meaning of the 2nd Amendment.

    In 1946, just after WWII, a corrupt local sheriff in Athens, Tennessee had to be captured by the WWII veterans/citizens when his political machine prevented fair elections within the county.

    The above site details the event, and the following is a reenactment of what actually took place:

    Don't let the antis shape the arguement.The 2nd amendment does not say one word about sporting or target guns.When the gun grabbers declare a gun not "necessary" for a citizen to own because it isn't used for hunting what they really mean is "we don't want you to have that gun because it gives you power against us".

    Don't let the smoke screen by them shape your arguement.There is no reason a law abiding,sane citizen should be denied a semi-automatic firearm that holds 30 rds..The only rationale you need for this arguement is afforded in the 2nd amendment and common sense.What you do with it, within the law, is your own business.No explanation needed.

    I think there was a movie made about this several years ago, but I don't remember the name of it.

    According to VP Joe, the Second assures you of owning a SXS and a box of shells!

    Still laughing how Mike Huckibee put into the light!! Yep two shots when you have numerous attackers, what you going to do, THROW the loaded rounds at them that are still coming at you!!

    Stupid doesn't even come close anymore to describing these people!
