John F Kennedy (JFK) on gun control and pro 2nd amendment !!!

”By calling attention to ‘a well regulated militia,’ ‘the security of the nation,’ and the right of each citizen ‘to keep and bear arms,’ our founding fathers recognized the essentially civilian nature of our economy… The Second Amendment still remains an important declaration of our basic civilian-military relationships in which every citizen must be ready to participate in the defense of his country. For that reason I believe the Second Amendment will always be important.”

- John F. Kennedy

  2. ….Although it is extremely unlikely that the fears of governmental tyranny which gave rise to the Second Amendment will ever be a major danger to our nation…

    …is what you failed to write. Kennedy did indeed support the 2nd Amendment. But the sentence you omitted was important. He was a moderate on this issue. Gun Control wasn’t even an issue in America until his assassination.

  3. I heard though JFK was a member of the NRA.He was right about the 2nd amendment.People need to know and why others are denying it.
