Why the Second Amendment?

"No free man shall ever be debarred the use of arms. The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government."

-- Thomas Jefferson, 1 Thomas Jefferson Papers, 334

"The very atmosphere of firearms anywhere and everywhere restrains evil interference - they deserve a place of honor with all that's good."
-- George Washington

"The best we can hope for concerning the people at large is that they be properly armed."

-- Alexander Hamilton, The Federalist Papers at 184-188

Incomprehensible, I know, to lefties who believe that government is the source of everything that is good and that the people must obey whatever their socialist masters plan for them.  That's why they cannot fathom the "gun culture."  But let's hope and pray they begin to figure this out and reverse course in time that Thomas Jefferson's last resort doesn't become necessary.
