The citizens of the USA - and of every country - need the Second Amendment's rights to protect themselves from rape and pillage by both government agents and common criminals.
But which one do you need the right to protect yourself from more? Which one can inflict the most damage on your and your family? Lone individuals? An out-of-control lethal government? Or a smooth-talking politician who tells you what you want to hear?
Governments have murdered some 169 million people in the twentieth century, yet mass murder by lethal government has been largely ignored by political scientists and politicians. Distinguished social scientist Professor Rummel defines the concept of democide as the intentional killing of its citizens by a government of unarmed people. Of course, the people must be disarmed first ...
Why would you be willing to take the enormous risk of believing a politician who wants even more power? Remember that Nazi Socialist dictator Adolf Hitler (Nazi from NAtional soZIalismus) was elected and re-elected by gullible German citizens who ignored his behavior and believed his misleading spin.
Your Constitutional Right to Protect Yourself
The American Constitution guarantees guns to everybody - "the right to bear arms shall not be infringed." Why? Because the USA had just fought the war of independence against the oppressive dictatorial government of King George the Third of England (full disclosure: my country of birth).
The US Founding Fathers knew the secret of success: An armed population can defend themselves against dictators, dictatorial governments and criminals, both foreign and homegrown. That's why the right to bear arms is in the Constitution, where it's not for repeal without a Constitutional Amendment. This is not just an historic quirk, it's what enabled Americans to gain their freedom from British oppression.
The British legally ruled over their American colony, so the people revolted against their legal government's excessive taxes. People the world over need the same clarity and freedom. Everybody needs to be able to disagree and protect themselves against dictatorship, whether by their own government or another.
Does Disarming Law-Abiding Citizens Ensure their Safety?

Lack of clarity about the results of disarming the population, obviously, enables dictatorship to flourish. Just ask the experts: Adolf Hitler, Joseph Stalin, Mao Zedong, Pol Pot and others all disarmed their people. Yes, gun control works!
How many Germans, Poles, and other Europeans did the Nazi dictator Hitler murder once he had first disarmed the population. National Socialist (Nazi) goons disrupted peaceful political gatherings, and help create an oppressive government with virtually infinite powers. Then Hitler invaded most of Europe and murdered millions of people, not just Jews and Romanies.
Yet the death toll could have been even higher. Historians say that the automatic guns above every Swiss fireplace deterred Hitler from invading heavily armed Switzerland, one of the safest and most prosperous countries in the world. Most Swiss voters understand this, they declined to self sabotage by rejecting the latest gun control attempt in 2011.
Is the Right to Protect Yourself Obsolete?
But isn't the right to protect yourself obsolete? Is it still needed today? The answer depends which problem you are trying to resolve. You'll change your life when you realize that, although politicians and the government will pretend otherwise, your problem is not necessarily the same one they are trying to address!
All citizens need the Second Amendment to protect themselves against out-of-control governments. Especially Americans!
The 1993 Waco massacre of the Branch Davidians by the US government shows the crucial importance of the right of US citizens to carry guns. Yet small arms and rifles could not save this unfortunate religious sect from the government's tanks, helicopters and CS gas used to exterminate their innocent women and children. (The United States first signed the Chemical Weapons Convention in 1969, which banned a number of chemical agents, including CS gas. The use of CS in war is considered a war crime.)
