We’ve heard it said that the most heavily armed force on the planet is the American citizenry. Not the American military, its citizenry. Those who doubt the effectiveness of the 2nd amendment must look beyond urban crime statistics and consider its usefulness as a matter of National security.
Were only the 1% of the population associated with the military or police forces allowed to bear arms, America would lose its largest deterrent to foreign invasion, and the Japanese Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto may have chosen a different strategy. The question then becomes, why should the standing military be such a drain on the National budget when the private sector, the citizenry, has both the rights and responsibility to provide for both National and Civil defense? We look forward to your comments!
