Right to Bear Arms - Protection Against Tyranny?
Advertisements [?]
It's almost a mantra among Second Amendment enthusiasts that the right to bear arms protects our citizens from tyranny. Unfortunately, this principle doesn't seem to hold universally. In Iraq, where everybody and his uncle walks around with a Kalashnikov, those people haven't known freedom for decades.

At a wedding ceremony, for example, the guests celebrate the union of bride and groom by firing automatic rifles in the air. It's hard to imagine that happening anywhere in the United States. But the Iraqis go from one tyrant to the next.

Do guns bring freedom? Or is that just a saying?
