The latest argument the gun control harpies have come up with is that somehow the Second Amendment was originally written to control guns, not to ensure that Americans had the right to bare them.
No, we’re not making this up.
Joe Walsh tried to explain the basics of the second:
Our right to keep & bear arms is our last line of defense against our own government.
That's why we have the 2nd Amendment.
But you knew that.

The Founding Fathers had just gone to war with their king for their freedom, so of course, they wanted to make sure that if in the future their new government grew out of control that the people weren’t helpless against them.
But Andy Richter doesn’t history much:
So our troops, then? You’d shoot at our troops? https://t.co/RlfuCKlbjf

Another day, another stupid Andy Richter tweet.
Guess Andy doesn’t understand who Americans were fighting in the Revolutionary War.
Andy, here's some free advice for 2018: less politics, more salad. You're welcome.

And cut down on the crazy juice.
Have you never heard of the Civil War? How about the American Revolution?

History is not Andy’s strong point.

You blithely assume our troops would be on the side of ‘government’.

Andy thinks everyone else thinks like him, except those redneck hillbillies who love their guns, and that everyone loves big government because he does. So the notion that troops might fight against an overreaching and evil government doesn’t register in his thick skull.
Our troops would be on the side of the Constitution against you loser #gunsense loons.

Would they shoot at civilians? Would the government ever exceed its limits in an unjust manner? Maybe North Korea is the paradise you wish to live?

@AndyRichter believes are soldiers will follow illegal orders because they’re SJW’s too.

But guns are bad, m’kay.
You sound exactly like a British sympathizer from 1773.

Something like that.
