"The heart of the wise inclines to the right, but the heart of the fool to the left." Ecclesiastes 10:2
Dr. Ben Carson, author and retired pediatric neurosurgeon, said,“But the real reason that they put it [2nd Amendment] there is recognizing that there could come a time when our government itself could go off the rail, and could try to dominate the people, and the people would need a mechanism of defense for themselves,” said Carson. “I would never allow the Second Amendment to be jeopardized.” (“I do believe that it is necessary for people to begin to have rational discussions about things – what kinds of weapons,” said Carson. “You know, I don’t think tanks, for instance, would be a very good thing to be keeping in your garage. But you certainly should have access to any kind of weapon that you want for recreational purposes or to protect yourself. There really shouldn’t be a lot of restrictions on that.” here
Dr. Carson is absolutely correct. Our Founders didn’t guarantee our “right” to own guns (and please note the plural) for hunting. These weren’t foolish, silly, socialist driven men. Those men understand quite well, that we would need that right to protect ourselves, as citizens, and not servants or subjects, from an overbearing, heavy-handed tyrannical government.
A “rational conversation” is needed, but we know without doubt that is something Democrats and the Left refuse to do. These are the people who want to remove our “right” to bear arms. It’s has nothing to do with “gun violence” and everything to do with an overbearing, heavy-handed tyrannical governments guarantee that only Government have the right to weapons.
