The 2nd Amendment Guarantees America's Freedom

 Why does America need a 2nd Amendment?  

Never in human history has civilian  populations suffered under the brutal fists of despotic governments more than the 20th century. Without fail, the first act of these despots when they seize control is to disarm their intended victims. Governments have slaughtered more civillians than all of the wars combined. 

The Second Amendment to the United States Constitution is vital to the health and well being of the body politic.
When the Tyrant has accomplished his goal of disarming the populace the central government attains a monopoly of arms.  At this point there are no checks or balances on the powers of the government.  

Once, disarmed, the people no longer have a means of redress.   

Secondly, with no means to resist the state's edicts the people become defacto slaves of the state.

Thirdly, once the will of the people is nullified, then the stultification of the populace sets in and the state begins to stagnate.  Cuba and North Korea are both stark examples of this eventuality. 
The albatross of tyranny chokes the people and by extension the state. All tyrants throughout history including present day must continually make certian that the people have no means of resistance.  This becomes a vicious cycle of fear, slaughter and paranoia all of which hastens the decay of the state. 

The entire purpose of the the states existence become the continuation of the Tyrants rule.  Look at the stagnation of the Soviet Union under Stalin, the slow financial growth of China under Mao.  The entire collapse of the economy under Fidel Castro.    

Freedom does not just benefit the people it breathes life into the populace who believe that they have a personal stake in the states prosperity.  The American dream drives the people of America to work harder, push themselves further then any depot's threats could ever hope to achieve.  It is the belief that in a free society any man or woman has the potential to rise as high as they desire if they just apply themselves.  This is the secret to America's success, it is the reason why America has achieved such great prosperity in such a short time.  

If the American colonists have not been well armed they would never have had their revolution. Since colonial time Americans have understood this, that a free nation is a function of an armed populous, and the founders reflected these realities in four places in the US constitution, the most famous being the Second Amendment. This amendment states A well regulated Militia being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.  
When you disarm the population you take not only there means of defense from them you steal the life blood of Democracy from them, Freedom . Without Freedom the state becomes stunted and will eventually wither and die. The fall of the Soviet Union in 1991 points to that fact rather dramatically.  At one time it was the most powerful nation on earth, yet as time went on the people bereft of any reason to rise and exceed their grasp, became drones who only did what they were forced to do to survive. This spiritual decay led to apathy which ate away at the Soviet Union from within.  In the end the nation state founded on a tyrant withered and died because it lacked a vital resource, FREEDOM.  

Unfortunately the mainstream media influenced by anti-constitutional interests rarely mentions any of this, nor do they ask the obvious question: If the Second Amendment says that US supposed to be a free State why is it that the country is  hurtling head long towards a police State?
