  1. Firearm possession and ownership may or may not be a human right, that is debatable, however, defending your life and the fruits of your labor ARE a natural human right! The vehicle of defense of this right must be proportionate to the level of threat that exists in the surrounding environment. I believe that this falls in line with the "natural law" premise that the constitution was drafted under and this is why I oppose the repeal of the second amendment.


  2. The entire bill of rights depends on the second amendment. If we lose the right to keep and bear arms, we will lose the rest of our rights. The second amendment was included in the constitution to prevent a tyrant like Obama from inflicting too much oppression(aka "social justice") on a free people. The fact that a self proclaimed expert on the constitution wants to repeal the second amendment means that he does not understand the constitution or that he is opposed to the rights guaranteed by the constitution.
