Amendment II: “A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.”
President Obama, most ‘left-wing’ Capitol Hill Democrats, and many members of the ‘Main-stream’ Medias appear determined to weaken or destroy the 2nd Amendment of (y)our Constitution.
Imagine what it would be like if and when (y)our government denied you and me the right to own or even possess a gun for practicing target shooting.
Imagine what it would be like if and when (y)our government denied you and me the right to own or even possess a gun for hunting wildlife game for (y)our family nourishment.
Imagine what it would be like if and when (y)our government denied you and me the right to own or even possess a gun for protecting yourself and/or your family against a criminal’s home invasion.
Imagine what it would be like if and when (y)our government denied you and me the right to own or even possess a gun for protecting yourself and/or your family against a mutinous government; and perhaps, a government’s home invasion into your own household.
President Obama and Capitol Hill Democrats fails to propose any legislation(s) to stop and/or prevent ‘law-breaking’ criminals from stealing guns and using these guns against ‘law-abiding’ citizens, and/or protecting yourself and/or your family against a mutinous government.
One cure is to leave our ‘law-abiding’ citizens alone for our guns to remain as a safety against criminals, and do not deny any changes to our 2nd Amendment.
A second cure is to restore and stiffen laws against lawbreakers who ‘illegally’ use guns in crimes. A murder conviction should and would again, mean the assailant is to get the ‘death’ penalty. That will stop the recurring action(s).
Thirdly, put God and our Holy Bible, our entire Constitutional history, the history of our Founding Fathers, as well as gun history and safety back into the ‘public’ schools.
Any and all Presidents, legislators, other appointed supervisors, etc. who attempt to violate and/or manipulate our Founding Fathers’ intent of our 2nd Amendment must be investigated. If evidence is found, he/she must be prosecuted. If convicted, the criminal must serve active time in prison.
(Y)our right to ‘keep and bear Arms’ discussions were referenced by our Founding Fathers as a protection for individuals, their families, and citizens’ protection ‘from’ a lawless and mutinous government.
As you talk to your family, friends, and neighbors, or see, hear, and read the political polls, many are starting to fear a mutinous government.
Americans are witnessing a ‘lawless’ Executive Branch of government.
“No freeman shall ever be debarred the use of arms.” -- Thomas Jefferson: Draft Virginia Constitution, 1776
“A free people ought not only to be armed but disciplined; to which end a uniform and well digested plan is requisite: And their safety and interest require that they should promote such manufactories, as tend to render them independent on others, for essential, particularly for military supplies.” -- George Washington's First Annual Message to Congress (January 8, 1790)
“They that can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.” -- Benjamin Franklin, Historical Review of Pennsylvania, 1759
Protect of our Second Amendment is essential to a free and open government. It was then and still is today; primarily intended to protect Americans from a mutinous government.
Tampering of the 2nd Amendment, in any way, is in violation of (y)our US Constitution.
God Bless America!
