    It makes sense in a way. I don't agree with him but I can see how it makes sense.

    The 2nd amendment = the right to self-protection, the right to protect his family and the community and protection against the government.

    Other:
    a. To protect the nation from invasion;
    b. To keep the government under the constant real threat of revolution.

    All of the above, the other reason is to rise against an corrupt oppressive tyrannical government.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius

    All should be protected. But the fundamental purpose is to protect the people's right to defend themselves. That includes defending themselves against corrupt government.

    Basically, that is what the American Revolution was all about.

    What is Ron Paul's position on the 2nd, and has he made any commentary on Obama’s intention to bring back the fairness doct- er, I mean, assault weapons ban.

    I'm not sure if these reasons have been mentioned yet, but we have guns to protect ourselves and overthrow our government if it becomes tyranical.
