Paul Ryan says, "I am happy to be clinging to my guns and my religion".
Well, good for him.
But he then says he is a hunter, inferring the second amendment is there to insure we can put meat on the table ourselves if we want, apparently.

I recently had a discussion with a loved one about the subject.
She is a "prey animal"... slight and one of the most non-threatening people you'd ever want to meet.
Her comment, actually a question, was, "Why does anyone need an "assault weapon?"
She was referring to weapons like the AK-47.

I responded by asking her if she knew the reason the Founding Fathers insured the 2nd amendment was part of the Bill of Rights. When she didn't respond, I wrote back, "You're right. We might not need an AK-47. If our government launches M1 'Abrams' tanks against our populace, an AK-47 would be ineffective. At that point, what citizens really need is a supply of Light Anti-tank Weapons."

It's my hope Congressman Ryan moves on and begins to educate us all about our Constitutional rights, (and history!).

I think Ryan was a brilliant choice. No one knows the numbers like he does. That has been obvious these last few years.
He is likable, a nice guy, he loves his family and country and he's sharper than a box of tacks.

Let's hope it won't come to that.

Ryan is a politician, so he's trying to hook a few undecided voters (aka dimwits) in the lip.

Was it Scalia who was interviewed recently and when asked about the 2nd, replied that it was "Keep and Bear Arms", so the arms must be bearable and would include RPGs?

Excellent point GB!

When guns are outlawed, only outlaws will have guns.

I never ceases to amaze me the sheer volume of folks who do not understand this concept. Thankfully, our right to bear pea-shooters and slingshots is being protected, so that when the squirrels come for me, I'll be ready!

Thank god they haven't outlawed my sarcasm yet, or I'd be forced to post links like this one anyway!

If the PTB are sending Abrams for me I want a Warthog. Or a Davy Crockett...
