The 2nd Amendment of the United States Constitution was adopted on December 15, 1791, and 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.” Those words were true then, and are true today.
There are those who wish to abolish the 2ndAmendment and impose their ideology on the people. This movement, by the Liberal/Globalist/Progressives to confiscate all guns is ongoing in our country right now. One only has to look at countries where gun ownership is not allowed, to see the results of that action…and it’s not good.
Why would anyone want this to occur? That’s easy, a citizenry without guns is easier to control. We do not want to be controlled by these greedy Liberals who want to make America into a Socialist/Muslim disaster area. We need our guns and will never give them up. The gun-grabbers have circulated all sorts of erroneous misinformation to convince us to get rid of our guns. Let’s look at some facts that negate their so-called information:
*Only 0.0003% of all US guns are used in homicides each year.
*CDC data shows that you are three times more likely to die from a fall than from being shot to death.
*Gun ownership has doubled, but homicides have dropped by one-half.
*If guns were banned, criminals would not pay attention to that, and would still acquire guns. This would leave citizens without protection.
*Fully-automatic weapons and alleged “assault weapons” have already been banned for many years.
*There are already many laws on the books referring to guns. They just need to be enforced. No new laws are required.
If being gun-free is so wonderful, then someone needs to explain to me why in gun-controlled Chicago, 800 people were shot and killed in 2016, and nearly 4,000 were shooting victims. It certainly looks like the criminals managed to get guns but the citizens of Chicago were left without any way to protect their families. It’s interesting, that Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel, has armed security paid for with Chicago taxpayer money. His constituents should have the same opportunity to defend themselves.
The Democrats, who are constantly trying to confiscate our guns, have a party which has become infected with all sorts of anti-American Socialists. They want an America similar to Venezuela, and look how that has turned out. Those who want to grab our guns cannot understand that guns are inanimate objects and guns do not jump up and kill…people kill people. A gun can stay, loaded, on a table, in full view of everybody and cannot shoot or harm anyone, UNTIL and unless, someone picks it up and wants to harm another human being.
Last word: I wish that all citizens would obtain concealed carry permits and own a gun. They need to know how to properly handle it and use it to protect themselves and those they love. Wherever I go, my gun goes with me. Stay locked and loaded, people.
