65% See Gun Rights As Protection Against Tyranny

Some great news from Rasmussen:

Two-out-of-three Americans recognize that their constitutional right to own a gun was intended to ensure their freedom.

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 65% of American Adults think the purpose of the Second Amendment is to make sure that people are able to protect themselves from tyranny. Only 17% disagree, while another 18% are not sure.

Apparently many Americans share a view similar to that of Thomas Jefferson’s: “No freeman shall ever be debarred the use of arms.” That’s good news.
