As President Obama signs executive orders to put limitations on firearms, Missouri lawmakers are pushing legislation to back the Second Amendment. The gun debate continues to rage on the political front, and citizens are arming themselves in record numbers.

Darrel House, co-owner of D&D’s Guns in Gower, Mo., said it’s difficult to find guns. He acquires their weapons through distributors who are having a tough time keeping guns in stock. He has to get up early in the morning and look online to get what he needs for his customers.

    “The Second Amendment is there so we can protect ourselves from a government that is not friendly to the people,” he said. “That’s why there aren’t supposed to be any laws (opposing the Second Amendment).”
    So using your logic, do you think you'll be wanting the 2nd amendment to give you the right to acquire nerve gas, tanks, nuclear weapons, spy drones, jet fighters and all the other toys this mythical "tyrannical government" has to wipe you out?
    This isn't about defending yourself against governments because it would take one heck of a lot more than even your 100 round popguns to do that. This is because you live in fear and hide behind the barrel of a gun.

    Ask the muslim fighters in afghanistan how they have done against the mightiest military force in the world, using little more than small arms and improvised explosives. Patriots in America could do it too if necessary.
