2nd Amendment Under an Attack Again
The US Senate web page (Senate.gov) which is controlled by the leading party (Democrats presently) have modified their explanation completely removing what the US Supreme Court has said in an attempt once again to undermined our freedom and attack the 2nd Amendment. Amendment II (1791) “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.” Their “explanation” of what it means now in their words, “Whether this provision protects the individual's right to own firearms or whether it deals only with the collective right of the people to arm and maintain a militia has long been debated.” The Supreme Court’s decision in District of Columbia v. Heller, 554 U. S. (2008): “We held that the Second Amendment protects the right to keep and bear arms for the purpose of self-defense, and we struck down a District of Columbia law that banned the possession of handguns in the home” pretty wells says the debate is over; WE HAVE THE RIGHT like it or not.
The Bill of Rights gives us and protects the individuals "unalienable rights" with which we were "endowed" by our Creator so this should be the end of the “long been debated” topic. Not with the liberals we have, they just circumvent the Supreme Court’s ruling by trying to limit your type of weapon, amount of bullets, and taxing the crap out of us so we can’t afford it, only the affluent can. In Virginia, gun sales has rose by 16% and if you fallow the liberal mindset that would mean gun violence would go up; the truth is it has went down over 5% in the first year after gun restrictions were lifted. What is the idea of Virginia gubernatorial candidate Terry McAuliffe to make crime drop even more; he said he would "push" for more gun control if he is elected governor; so he apparently like most liberals wants more crime. Statistics show overwhelmingly where you have gun control you have more violence; but statistics don’t matter to liberals unless it is in their favor or they can skew them to put it in their favor. It’s a no-brainer; if you have gun control then the criminals are the only ones who have them.
This thought pattern is dangerous and reminds me of the “The Bear Man” Timothy Treadwell up in Alaska; he had taken some incredible pictures and videos of grizzly bears in Alaska for years referring to them as “my pets” even chasing one who took his food. What happens when you have no protection against nature’s violent absolutes, no matter if it is a gun wielding thug or a grizzly bear, you loose! He and his girlfriend, or what was left of them, were found eaten. They had a video tape recording which captured the sound of the whole vicious attack by a grizzly just as many times a video tape captures the whole vicious attacks of unarmed law abiding citizen in large towns being killed by thugs. The Bear Man made it for a while but he was dead wrong in his view of grizzlies just as many who are anti-gun are dead wrong; nature not kept in check, either human or animal, in areas we choose to tread will eventually kill you. Mr. Treadwell would have never of used a gun on a bear no matter who the bear was going to kill and eat, this was his belief and choice and he paid with his and his girlfriend's life. We are given the same choice by the US Constitution against not only wildlife but criminals and if you don't want a gun and want to be eaten (metaphorically speaking) by the criminals around you that is your choice, but I'm going to protect my family and myself. The 2nd Amendment is the most attacked amendment by these UN-Americans, anti-Constitutionalists but they and the media refuse to face the truth, guns control kills innocent people.
Many politicians use events like the Washington Navy Yard shooting to call for more gun control laws when gun control laws are what made the victim count so high. As I pointed out in “Navy Yard Shooting Caused by Our Politicians” famous political Democrat once said, "Our military would offend someone if they were armed state side". In 1993 our military was disarmed by President Bill Clinton making it almost impossible for commanders to issue guns to the troops while state side; why? If they were still carrying sidearms the shooter at the Navy Yard and Fort Hood would have never of killed and wounded as many as they did. As I also pointed out in “Guns Save Lives and Not All Teens are Alter Boys” the national media ignores guns saving lives but promote every gun attack they can if they believe they can put a negative spin on guns. On 22 Sept 13 President Obama used the victims of the Washington Navy Yard shooting to calling for a “transformation in the nation's gun laws to address an epidemic of gun violence. There's nothing inevitable about it." He used this horrific event caused by the last Democratic president as a political tool which is disgraceful but he and our politicians from both sides have turned from having honor and respect to being disgraceful and duplicitous, equivocating the truth for personal gains. I would like to watch one debate without the lying, misleading, bloviating to avoid answering, and misrepresenting of the facts; oh wait, we are talking about our current politicians so that won’t happen. President Obama should honor the victims instead of making a political speech once again this shows that neither he nor very many of our elected officials have any class.
The 4th Amendment goes hand in hand with the 1st and 2nd Amendments. Amendment IV, “The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.” This covers the right for me to be secured in myself and my freedoms without you taking my information (papers = personal information) which currently is happening, a gun registry would enable the government if they so choose, to seize anyone’s property (guns) if they so choose; and before you say a word; yes it is against the constitution but politicians have violated and circumvented the Constitution any way they could for years; all politicians take an oath to uphold the Constitution, unfortunately few do. We as Americans have to realize the facts of human nature; once the government politicians from any political groups removes the 1st, 2nd, and 4th Amendment, we are no longer free. You will then see true Socialism rear its ugly head which means everything you have belongs to the government; you will not have freedom of religion, freedom from unreasonable search and seizure, freedom of speech to rebuke your politicians, or freedom to defend your rights and protect yourself with your gun; you had better think about that during the next election.
