I thought it was all about the money. But I can’t see where money enters into it. What motivates American politicians to legalize torture, remove the right to due process, strip the US Supreme Court of appelate jurisdiction, authorizing unsupervized wire-tapping, and overturn the Magna Carta? It frightens me greatly that the political party in charge of my country is a willing lap-dog to that regime.
It is behaviour like this that makes me think that the framers of the US Constitution knew what they were doing when they included the 2nd amendment.
