Deterrence as Envisioned by the Founding Fathers Against a Future Tyrannical Government
To the Founding Fathers such as Thomas Jefferson, American conservatives, libertarians, veterans, patriots, preppers and gun enthusiasts and from a Bill of Rights perspective, the unalienable rights of the Second Amendment act as the primary deterrence against big government Nanny state-Police state tyranny.
