Keep your guns. The people have the right of self-protection and the founders expected that good government would not last and would need to be replaced. The people have the right to form a new government when the old government rots in place.
The last stanza of Cheyenne, a TV western hero played by Clint Walker is:
"Move along, Cheyenne --- Next pasture's always so green. Driftin' on, Cheyenne don't forget the things you have seen, And when you settle down where will it be? Cheyenne! Cheyenne!"
From Hugh O'Brian in Wyatt Earp:
"Wyatt Earp, Wyatt Earp, brave courageous and bold, long live his fame and long live his glory, and long may his story be told."
Cheyenne Bodie was a drifter who held many odd jobs, and because the West was dangerous, he packed a six-shooter. Wyatt Earp was a lawman, and his job was to take care of the bad guys. As such, he carried a big gun and he knew how to use it.
You may argue with me but there are lots of stories from the old west and from today's America in which the armed have saved their families by being armed.
