“Japan would never invade the United States. We would find a rifle behind every blade of grass.”
That quote is by Isoroku Yamamoto, the Japanese Commander-in-Chief during WWII. It sure made a lot of people proud at the time, too! Times have changed. While there are still rifles behind every blade of grass… the country is now both politically and geographically different. Places with blades of grass are now concrete jungles. What Yamamoto said remains true. What does the concrete jungle have to do with anything? Most large cities, particularly on the coast, are ran by Liberal governments with fairly strict gun control laws. Los Angeles (and all of California as well), NYC, DC, Baltimore, Boston, etc. The vast majority of these large cities are relatively gun free when compared to the rest of the United States.
People argue that one of the main points of our Second Amendment is to prevent an invasion. I can agree with that. So now that it’s 2010 vs 1942, are countries so afraid to invade the US still? Japan was deterred by our gun ownership. Does that hold true 70 years later? If they could somehow be sneaky enough to get close, an enemy would have little trouble making a landing in the right part of the country. Barring interaction with our military (not sure how easy it would be to mobilize before it was too late), an enemy would be able to take large swaths of land before we could stop them.
The destruction of the Second Amendment WILL be our country’s undoing.
P.S.–I’m not being paranoid, I don’t think it will happen, but it does aid our enemies by disarming us.
