This is an old video and an old incident, but I think it says everything about personal protection and the true reason our Founding Fathers put in the second amendment. They did not put it there our right to hunt or for our love of guns. They wrote the second amendment because it was armed civilians who defeated the British Government and it is the armed civilians that protect us from our government growing out of control.
Watch the whole video, the first segment is Suzanna Gratia-Hupp testifying about gun control and how it got her family and 20 others killed without a chance to defend themselves. Their is also another segment interviewing her at her home years later and finally has a segment from Ben and Teller on the Second amendment.
