We have all heard the liberal talking heads spew their anti-gun rhetoric. We are amazed at their complete lack of understanding of the Second Amendment. For example, comparing the mandates for air bags and seat belts to gun control -- people complained about required car safety measures and the resulting benefits, guns should be likewise regulated.
The right to bear arms is guaranteed by our Constitution; car safety measures are not.
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.People have guns to protect themselves, their family, their property, their freedom.
Globally, millions and millions of people have been killed by tyrannical governments and rulers, even more held in stick obedience to oppressive rule. These subjects lacked the ability to defend themselves against despots. Our current leaders are despot wannabes.
The emotions tied to Columbine, Virginia Tech and Newtown are painful. But these cases should not be the catalyst for ill-conceived executive orders.
Assault weapons, high-capacity magazine clips and ammunition volume and type are not the problems. The Virginia Tech killer did not use a high-capacity magazine clip. If someone comes to take away our freedoms, we want the ability to fight back with equal weaponry.
The current government it trending toward oppression. It is using emotional parlor tricks, gimmicks and deceit to misrepresent the problems and its so-called solution.
It is my hope that America will not fall for these flim-flam artists. That it will reject this President and his misguided supporters with full fervor. Thankfully, grass root Americans are speaking up and demonstrating focused action and resolve.
