Damn, it is beyond my comprehension. I just saw CNN Hardball with Chris Matthews (OK, it was on in the background on the multi service news channel, I have no choice in news where I am so don't think ill of me). Anyway, he was speaking about Huckabee and how he was pro gun. Matthews stated Huckabee (not an exact quote) was "not like the others who believe that there are guns for sporting, self defense, and the like, but that he (Huckabee) said he believed in the ownership of guns to prevent the government from having too much power over the people". Matthews went on and said that this was a scary thought, and was in disbelief that Huckabee would say such a thing. Well there it is gents. A man states that he believes in the Second because of its original intent. There is no more pure definition or explanation of why it was written down by our Founding Fathers than what Huckabee stated. And it was met with shock and what I believe had undertones of "man, we should watch this guy, he is dangerous because he doesn't want the government to have too much (e.g. all) the power". I read a quote from someone (apologize that I cannot remember where) that "the Second Amendment is no more about hunting than the First Amendment is about the right to play scrabble". Not a great quote, but it gets at the heart of it. Big things at stake here gents, make no mistake about it.
