Chuck Norris appeared on Glenn Beck’s show on Fox News. He defended the Second Amendment saying :
“The final line in the Second Amendment says, ‘The right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.’
That means not by the president, not by Congress. They are not allowed to take our rights away with this because of the Second Amendment, Glenn. And the thing is, I have a 700-acre ranch in Texas. And I have a lot of guns on my ranch.
I don’t use them for hunting. I’m not a hunter. But the thing is, it’s for protection. And the Second Amendment was designed for tyranny against the government. If the government decides to become a tyrannical government, our guns are to protect us against that. And that’s really what the Second Amendment is all about, Glenn.”
Chuck is right. Without armed citizens, the government is left to run unchecked. Since the government in the United States exists for the people, and by the people, it stands to reason that the people should have the right to stand up against a tyrannical government.
Thankfully this country has not seen tyranny as Europe saw out of Germany in the early part of the 20th century, or Africa saw from Rwanda. The day may come however, and you’ll know it’s close when the government starts taking away our guns.
