This is a spot on depiction of why the right to self-defense and weapon ownership is enshrined in American tradition.
It seems as though the debate on the right to bear arms is more intense than it has ever been in modern American history. With the media’s help, anti-gun icons are given prime time interviews on broadcast media networks on a regular basis, and anti-Second Amendment protests are covered with almost universal praise.
Was there ever a time when the cultural and political elite have ever been pro-gun?
The truth is that ruling classes have never really had much of a vested interest in presiding over suspects that could overthrow them at a moment’s notice — which is precisely what the Second Amendment empowers Americans to do.
It’s been said over and over again at this point, but it worth repeating: the Second Amendment was never about hunting. Americans were given the right to bear arms because the memory of a foreign armed force patrolling their streets was still fresh in the Founders’ minds, and they understood that removing tyranny always invites another form of it to rise up and take its place.
So, what if the pawns on a chess board, which heavily outnumber the royal figures on the same side, had that same level of independence? Well, it would probably look a lot like this picture…
