Gun Control Rears its Ugly Head Again!

Politicians say this year they will finally pass some “sane and sensible” gun laws. There is no such thing. Every gun law makes the law abiding citizens less safe and the criminal more safe when committing crime. Gun laws don't stop criminals. Criminals don't obey gun laws. This isn't rocket science unless you're a politician bent on violating your oath of office. The 2nd Amendment states that the right to keep and bear arms shall NOT be infringed. Any law infringing that RIGHT including singling out and taxing ammunition is a violation of the right. Only the most dishonorable of persons swear to protect and defend the Constitution and then don't.

And to the baloney flying around about restricting certain firearms. The founders intended the average citizen to have the same firearms as the military, because all freemen are potential members of a militia if needed to defend the Constitution and country. Anti-gun minions point to the word militia in the 2nd Amendment to try to limit civilian firearm ownership. We the people are the militia in the amendment as the founders have said.

 

"I ask, sir, what is the militia? It is the whole people, except for a few public officials." George Mason

 

"Who are the militia? Are they not ourselves? Is it feared, then, that we shall turn our arms each man against his own bosom. Congress have no power to disarm the militia. Their swords and every other terrible implement of the soldier, are the birthright of an American... The unlimited power of the sword is not in the hands of either the federal or state governments, but where I trust in God it will ever remain, in the hands of the people." Tenche Coxe

 

"A militia when properly formed are in fact the people themselves ... and include... all men capable of bearing arms. ... The mind that aims at a select militia, must be influenced by a truly anti-republican principle."  Richard Lee

 

The 2nd Amendment is there so “We The People” can resist a tyrannical government of corrupt political leaders violating our Constitution, nothing less. The challenge to all of you gun banners is this: Publish your argument proving to us that your proposed anti-gun law is going to make criminals obey your law, reduce crime and make us safer instead of less safe and not infringe our rights. If you cannot demonstrate this then go away, you're endangering the rest of us with your foolishness and the blood of the innocents is on your  hands as much as the criminals.

Gun restrictions on law abiding citizens make them victims to violent criminals. The bad guys don't care about gun laws. It only makes what they do easier. Focus on better law enforcement, prison systems. and identifying the mentally ill. That's the real problem!

Very True, along with enforcing current laws that seems to be very much lacking in judges.
