What the 2nd ammendment is about

Suzanna Gratia-Hupp: What the Second Amendment is REALLY For

http://video.google.com/videoplay?do...61537893819675

Texas state representative, Suzanna Gratia-Hupp, whose parents were killed by an insane gunman while her gun was out in the car, gives very moving and bold testimony about the REAL reason that the second amendment was designed to protect our God-given right to keep and bear arms.

No, that is not what the Second Amendment is about.

That is what the Ninth Amendment is all about, but not the Second.

Yeah, the 2A is more about people being armed so they can overthrow the government.

The Founding fathers also had in mind the right for citizens to protect themselves from others / criminals. The 2a is more about overthrowing a govt that is too powerfull.
