Seriously, which part?
But when it comes to guns, you'll find virtually no daylight between me and any proud son or daughter of the great state of Texas. Indeed, as far as I am concerned, if the rest of the USA adopted the best traits of Texas, the whole country would be better off. (And we'd have fewer liberal weenies pissing in everybody's beer, too. Where's the bad?!)
This is what the Second Amendment literally says, word for word:
A well-regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.
I didn't understand it as a "right" to hunt. That interpretation is simply idiotic; until relatively recently, the vast majority of people didn't get their meat and fish from a store, they had to go out and kill it themselves. If they didn't, they starved, end of story. The notion that a governmental document has to preserve a "right" to eat is so stupid that it deserves to be treated with nothing more than utter contempt. It is, instead, very clearly a right, guaranteed in perpetuity, to defend oneself and one's possessions from predation by others.
I was not born in a country with America's magnificent tradition of individual liberty. I didn't grow up in such countries either- Australia, back when I was living there, was well on its way to becoming the SJW-land that it is today, and as for Singapore, let's not even start. I came back a little under 6 months ago from an assignment in a country that used to have that tradition, but gave it away in the name of "social progress", to their very great loss.
So if even a heathen foreigner like me can figure out what the 2nd Amendment means, with (at the time) next to no understanding of the background behind the wording, what possible excuse do gun-control advocates who were born and brought up in this country have?
With that in mind, here is a video from some years back exploring the results of the comprehensive gun ban that the British imposed on themselves back during the Bliar era. (That was deliberate.) And, cliched as it sounds, it is a warning from a country that is about 20 years farther down the road to ruin that the US is charging down now while breaking every possible safety rule in the book:
The most interesting man in the world('s gun-totin' cousin):
Cute, nice voice, and she likes guns. Can she cook too?
|This would certainly make grizzly-hunting even more hair-raising than it already is|
