The right to be armed is not intended to promote violence....

   Rather, it was intended to PREVENT violence. Which is something that many seem to have confused. And this, out of cowardice, or to gain more 'power' and 'control'.

   This world, in its present condition, will not cease to have violence. This is a fact that has been proven repeatedly throughout history.

   The best we can hope for, or do, is to prepare ourselves to conform to that factual condition. And be armed in order to provide an effectual deterrent to those that are disposed to utilize violence to fulfill their own selfish ends.

   As was noted by writer Robert A. Heinlein:

   "An armed society is a polite society. Manners are good when one may have to back up his acts with his life."

   And the above applies to all aspects of society. It applies to those in our governments. As is evidenced by the fact of our hired servants in our governments being armed. Which is of course meant to enforce law by threat of force.

   But the men that framed our Constitution knew that government itself must be kept in line. They knew that "power corrupts, and absolute power corrupts absolutely". As has been shown to be true all throughout recorded history. And, that the only effective means of keeping that power in check. Was that of having an armed populace as a ready and visible "check" on those entrusted with power. Which is of course why those in power always attempt to restrict and/or disarm their people.

   We were not only intended to be armed in order to keep those in our governments from becoming criminal. But to keep the criminals on our streets in line as well. Which of course would put a serious dent in the multi-billion dollar [supposed] 'criminal justice' system industry.

   So we then see that the love of power and money are the true reasons why those in power are unconstitutionally restricting and/or disarming We The People. And they will continue to attempt it as long as there are cowards within our population that cry out for them to do so.
