See also: Question for anti-gun protesters: When the government death squads come for your loved ones, how will you stop them? The Second Amendment was created to ensure that individuals have the right to protect themselves from irrational mobs What the anti-gun mindless mobs don’t seem to yet recognize is that the Second Amendment was created, in part, to allow citizens to protect themselves from mindless mobs just like you.
