J Fiedler: Much of the news media reported that Orlando was the worst/largest mass murder in US History. More left wing propaganda so that they and the rest of the left can go after our 2nd Amendment rights. Below is a summary of the largest mass murder in US History and is a prime example of why we have the 2ndAmendment. The Largest Mass Shooting In Us History Happened December 29, 1890 – When 297 Sioux Indians at Wounded Knee Creek on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in South Dakota were murdered by federal agents & members of the 7th Cavalry who had come to confiscate their firearms “for their own safety and protection”. The slaughter began after the majority of the Sioux had peacefully turned in their firearms. The Calvary began shooting, and managed to wipe out the entire camp. 200 of the 297 victims were women and children. Wounded Knee wasamong the first federally backed gun confiscation attempts in United States history. It ended in the senseless murder of 297 people. The Second Amendment, the right of the people to take up arms in defence of themselves, their families, and property in the face of invading armies or an oppressive government. The Second Amendment was written by people who fled oppressive and tyrannical regimes in Europe, and it refers to the right of American citizens to be armed for defensive purposes, should such tyranny arise in the United States.   Wounded Knee is a prime example of why the Second Amendment exists.
