    Guns & Freedom

    http://reason.com/archives/2013/01/10/guns-and-freedom

    To assure that no government would infringe the natural rights of anyone here, the Founders incorporated Jefferson's thesis underlying the Declaration into the Constitution and, with respect to self-defense, into the Second Amendment. As recently as two years ago, the Supreme Court recognized this when it held that the right to keep and bear arms in one's home is a pre-political individual right that only sovereign Americans can surrender and that the government cannot take from us, absent our individual waiver.
    "Absent our individual waiver" This is the key; the collective desire of the people cannot waive, or make obsolete, our individual rights.

    Even if there was a constitutional convention, and even if ⅔ voted in favor of the abolition of the 2nd amendment, it would not eliminate our rights; only on paper.

    "A heavily armed citizenry is not about overthrowing the government; it is about preventing the government from overthrowing liberty. A people stripped of their right of self defense is defenseless against their own government." -source

    Let's all pick one of these anti gun, anti freedom progressive marxist and buy them a membership in the NRA. That would really make their day when the membership material arrived. And pick first freedom as the magazine of choice.
