It's NOT about Hunting, and even DEFENSE is defense of a Bill of Needs, not RIGHTS. So why should non-gun owners, a majority of Americans, care about maintaining the 2nd Amendment right for citizens to bear arms of any kind?
It's Always been Tyranny of Political Hacks, dedicated to being Supreme Masterminds or just plain GREED.
“The Battle of Athens, TN”
The Cantrell family had controlled the economy and politics of McMinn County, Tennessee since the 1930s. Paul Cantrell had been Sheriff from 1936 -1940 and in 1942 was elected to the State Senate. Sheriff Cantrell's chief deputy, Paul Mansfield, (having seniority) was subsequently elected to two terms as Sheriff.
In 1946, returning WWII veterans put up a popular candidate for Sheriff. On August 1, Sheriff Mansfield and 200 “deputies” stormed the post office polling place to take control of the ballot boxes wounding an objecting observer in the process. The veterans, bearing military style weapons, laid siege to the Sheriff’s office demanding return of the ballot boxes for public counting of the votes as prescribed in Tennessee Law. After exchange of gun fire and blowing open the locked doors, the veterans secured the ballot boxes thereby protecting the integrity of the election.
And this is precisely why all Americans should be concerned about protecting our right to keep and bear arms is guaranteed by the Second Amendment!
Law Abiding Citizens have been put out adequately for Pretend Public Safety and it's time to declare ENOUGH! If Congress needs a proving ground for Universal Registration, cross checking State By State for ANYTHING, let them start with Voter Registration. My State already has my name, address, Photo, Fingerprints (as a regulated Professional in Violation of 4A) and now my permission to SHARE with the other members of the Republic for which I STAND.
