Americans are protective of 2nd Amendment rights

All of the mainstream media and politicians are abuzz with revoking the 2nd Amendment. What they don't realize is that gun, ammunition and gun accessories have shot up 1,000 percent since the day after the Newtown, Conn., shooting.

Go into any retailer that sells firearms and try to purchase an AR 15 rifle. Gone.

If everyone agreed with the mainstream media and the politicians, gun sales would be zero.

To those that want to take the 2nd Amendment, I just have this to say. Once they take one right, they will go after the rest.

The 2nd Amendment stops a tyrannical government from taking the rest of your rights. Hitler, Stalin and Mao agree – gun control works.
