Owning assault rifles reminds our representatives that "we the people" will NOT be controlled, but rather will do the controlling.
Our forfathers did not have hunting or home defense in mind. It is important that assault rifles be allowed to be owned and further more important the government does not know where they are.
The 2nd ammendment was never about hunting or self defense. It's about our leaders understanding they better not push the limits.
AS THEY'RE ABOUT TO TRY AND DO!
“A free people ought not only to be armed and disciplined, but they should have sufficient arms and ammunition to maintain a status of independence from any who might attempt to abuse them, which would include their own government.” ~George Washington
