‘Gun control is government control.’

Those words from Senator Ted Cruz in the wake of President Obama’s move to restrict the Second Amendment. Cruz said, “The entire reason for the second amendment is not for hunting, it’s not for target shooting,” those are great activities, “But that’s not what the second amendment is for.”

He commented that throughout history, various regimes have stripped guns away from their subjects; and while these actions were popular at the time, they were “an inevitable prelude to tyranny.”

He said, “The second amendment is there so that you and I can protect our homes and our families and our children and our lives…And it’s also there as a fundamental check on government tyranny. And that ultimately is not subject to public opinion polls, it’s subject to the express protections of the Bill of Rights and the Constitution.”
