Why do we have a Bill of Rights? Do you even know what is in it? In my opinion, far to many people, who should know better, dismiss it as archaic and obsolete (especially the Second Amendment). They seem to think that the “all powerful” and “benevolent” government will keep them safe from …well, everything…and provide them with all of their “needs” (free cell phones anyone?).
The Second Amendment is a hot topic at the present time, because the people in power never “let a good crisis go to waste”. The criminal murder of children and their teachers in CT, is being used as an excuse to pass more laws regulating a right that was NOT given to us by government but is OURS by divine right. The Bill of Rights enumerates these rights and NOWHERE does it say that they were granted by the government.
The bill presented to congress by the Wicked Bitch of the West, Feinstein, wants to ban just about everything, for totally nonsensical reasons (it’s EVIL and SCARY looking, it has a PISTOL GRIP, for G-ds sake….)and obviously didn’t get written overnight. This has been in the works (“Under the radar”) for a long time, just waiting for the right crisis to come along. Sandy Hook was perfect – young children murdered, brave teachers sacrificing their lives to try and save their young charges, you name it, this one had it. Feinstein wants to ban as many types of firearms as possible and register the rest. Sound familiar? Hitler did it, too.
Except NONE of the proposed laws will do ANYTHING to stop the next time, and there WILL be a next time, because criminals and mental cases don’t CARE about LAWS!!! Banning things has never worked and never will. We need to focus on the causes and do what we can to address them. Punishing law abiding citizens for the actions of a madman won’t solve the problem. A gun is just a tool. Like any tool it can be misused. Lizzie Bordon was accused of killing her parents with an axe, but I bet there wasn’t any legislation proposed to ban axes, was there?
It is up to us, the law abiding, tax paying, Citizens of AMERICA, to stand up to a government that teeters perilously close to tyranny, to stand firm and refuse to let them trash our Constitution and the Bill of Rights. I urge you to write and call your “representatives” and let them know that WE the PEOPLE have had enough and to keep their hands off our rights and our guns.
