Re: The Second Amendment---Broken down
While I would still probably lose, though it has been shown that not always the case. Look at Randy Weaver.
If I do not have the ability to defend myself, then what good am I? The things I would have to do the next day would only be to serve your would-be masters. I will not be one of those "who has something better to do."
My principles supercede anything else I do in life. Without my principles, I am nothing. I dare anyone to take my guns away. They will only fail as I will never give my rights away. Why pretend to care about your natural rights if you do not intend to act on them?
Lose or not, I will not give anything that is rightfully mine away for free. If they want my guns, they will work for them. What happens after that depends on the will of the population. If it's weak, it will flounder and do whatever it's leaders tell them to do. Just as Hitler's, Stalin's, and Pol Pot's followers did. I will not partake in saying "I have better things to do tommorrow." The only important thing I have for tommorrow is my principles. Without them I am nothing. We are nothing without principles.
Our principles are what makes this a great country. Every single other country on this earth has been through dozens of corrupt governments while ours sustained has principle and the fear of its own citizenry. Right now we have a president who is blatantly attempting to circumvent the freedom of speech. Right now we have a president who thinks he can do a better job than you. Right now we have a president who think you shouldn't defend yourself. Right now we have a president who thinks it's okay to kill babies after they've been born and surviving an abortion attempt. Right now we have a president who thinks that war veterans are terrorists. Right now we have a president who thinks you are a terrorist. Right now is not the time to say "I have things to do tommorrow." Right now is the time to make a stand. Right now is the time to think about what will be handed to your decendents.
My father, grandfather, uncles, many other family members, and too many friends have fought in foreign wars protecting the rights of people they do not know. I will NOT sit idly by as ours are taken. Law or not, no bureaucrat will take my natural rights away.
