The real reason for the Second Amendment? It's actually pretty simple.
The founders knew this, and they perhaps also knew that zombies were inevitable in America. All you had to do to get a zombie horde was to pass them some free health care. Of course zombies don't need health care being undead already.
Then again, there's plenty of people alive today getting things from government that they don't need. But they get it because it's free.
There's a mandate now (for now) to buy health insurance. There should be a mandate to buy Armalites. Now that would be interesting!
By way of non sequitur, today is April Fool's Day. But I digress.
The real reason for this post is that I wanted to use the word Armalite. It's a cool-sounding word, and a hip reference. But it's not as cool the Adam 12 reference posted on The Last Tradition.
