People often ask, especially people from other countries, why are Americans so obsessed with guns, why are we so insistent on preserving our right to protect ourselves and encourage everyone to have a gun in spite of all the gun violence in the world today?
What they fail to realize is that gun rights have played a part in our nation since the very beginning.
The first shots fired at Bunker Hill, which began our American Revolution was a direct result of the British attempt to seize the guns of the American colonists.
After the revolt over unfair taxation, the first step of the Crown in an attempt to take control over the colonies was an attempt to capture an arsenal and seize our guns, thus eliminating our ability to defend ourselves.
This act implanted in our minds the need to have the ability to defend ourselves from the aggressive acts of government by maintaining a right to bear arms. This measure not only defends Americans from an oppressive government, but it also protects people around the world from oppressive governments as well.
If we didn’t have our second amendment rights, sooner or later we would fall to a different form of government and we would lose our ability to help other countries in need.
