The 2nd Amendment: What Our
Founding Fathers Really Feared

Why did our Founding Fathers write the 2nd amendment?
They feared something. And it’s that same fear that exists today…

Julius Caesar stopped his 13th legion and looked across the ‘forbidden’ river.

What he was about to do was illegal. If he was caught, he and his army (the 13th legion) would be sentenced to death…immediately.

Caesar looked back at his army and back at Rome one last time. He knew what he had to do, supposedly screaming “The Die is Cast!” which means there’s no turning back now.

He was right.

Julius Caesar had only ONE chance to become the supreme leader of Rome. If he succeeded, he’d have access to power that very few men in history ever possessed — the infinite power of a dictator.

Caesar smiled at the potential possibilities and crossed the river, marching onto the innocent plains of Rome.

And what came next was surprising:

Caesar succeeded beyond anyone’s wildest imaginations, assuming control of the government and establishing himself as Rome’s dictator for life.

This same sequence of events repeated itself COUNTLESS times over the course of history. The result is a loss of freedom for everyone. The cause?

A standing army.

And it’s those same standing armies that our Founding Fathers tried to protect us from when they created… The 2nd Amendment. .....
