The Second Amendment to our Constitution states, "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."
What part of this do you people not understand? The language is crystal clear.
The assault on the Second Amendment began in 1934 with the National Firearms Act while Franklin D. Roosevelt was president. Roosevelt made no excuses or apologies for his liberal agenda all the while watching Hitler disarm Germany in order to pursue his agenda. Progressive, liberal thinkers believe in values advanced by European Social Democrats. "Social Democracy advocates for a peaceful, evolutionary transition of the economy to socialism through progressive social reform of capitalism... social democracy originated... in 19th century Germany from the influence of... Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels... (Wikipedia)". There are a couple of really nice guys. Socialists' believe the governing body and intellectual thinkers know what is better for the populace than the individual does.
"A Constitutional Republic (The United States) is a state where the officials are elected as representatives of the people and must govern according to existing constitutional law that limits the government's power over citizens (From Conservapedia)." Our liberal government has consistently ignored the constitution, it's oaths of office, and the rule of law in its' pursuit of socialism. Gun control is not about guns, it is about people control, the ultimate goal of a socialist society. It is or should be illegal to chip away at the law of the land thru legislation or executive order directly ignoring the intent of the Constitution. If the liberals do not like a clause in the Constitution there is a remedy spelled out in the document on how to amend it with all of the citizens having an equal voice.
Politicians vote themselves salary for life, free medical care, pensions and more, telling the working man to pay it while he struggles to pay his own bills. The Founding Fathers never imagined that politicians would so blatantly disregard the Constitution and line their own pockets at the expense of the electorate; the really sad thing is we let them do it.
A very recent example of the outrageous behavior of politicians is New York Governor Cuomo exempting Hollywood from the provisions of his new gun laws; it's laughable if it wasn't so egregious, he should be run out of Albany on a rail.
Stand up, vote carpet baggers out of office, find people who believe in this Country, vote them into office and take this Country back.
