Reader Input: We’ll keep our arms, thank you

-A +A

Talking to my mom in Auburn recently she described about gun control proposals in California, and you know the founders were pretty smart with the Second Amendment.
Why? You have to look no further than today’s news. Arab Spring, Egypt: People overthrew dictator after citizens were able to obtain arms. Tunisia: People overthrew dictator after citizens were able to obtain arms. Yemen: People overthrew dictator after citizens were able to obtain arms Libya: People overthrew dictator after citizens were able to obtain arms. Syria: People overthrowing dictator after citizens were able to obtain arms.
Coming uprisings: Bahrain with major protests in Algeria, Iraq, Jordan, Kuwait, Morocco and Sudan; and minor protests have occurred in Lebanon, Mauritania, Oman, Saudi Arabia, Djibouti and Western Sahara.
And, after successful revolution, what is the first thing the “new government” requires? Every citizen turn in their arms. That is why we have the Second Amendment.
