This is just a snippet:

On November 10th the WSJ published this: "Last week President-elect Obama's Web site...posted his administration's agenda for curtailing the Second Amendment rights of law abiding Americans, thereby validating the concerns of gun owners, sportsmen and firearms enthusiasts all across the country." A December poll by Southwick Associates found that 80 percent of shooters expect the new administration to make the purchase of firearms more difficult.
If people anticipated a return to Prohibition, many would stock up on Scotch and wine. Likewise with guns and ammo. And unlike wine, if properly cared for guns last and work well for many decades.

Our Second Amendment is based on fear of abusive government, not duck hunting. Many find personal defense increasingly important. Friends of liberty and security act on these considerations. It's na´ve to ignore these philosophically and historically justified forces.
