My take on guns

While you were distracted by the economy, they fixed your health care system. While you were distracted by your health care system, they worked on cap-and-trade plus immigration “reform.”
Under the continued distraction of the last two items above, surely you will never see the pre-planning to remove guns from your home. Surely the man whose agenda has become a substitute for the United States Constitutionwill not think twice about a nation safer from firearms.
“It’s for your own good” will be the rallying cry, but where have we heard that one before?
Notice the man in the Oval Office flinch noticeably when pressed on the Constitution, his specialty. Expect that he believes that our laws emanate from our government, and not from a higher power.
The Founding Fathers of the United States of America (can I still say that in print?) foresaw a time when our federal government would become so large that it would become unresponsive to the people and disconnected. A time when power of the individual citizen was diminished anddiscounted.
The Founding Fathers saw that the tyranny of top-down power by a government over a population was possible, so they designed a multiple-tier government with separation of powers. Checks and balances were made needfully cumbersome to retard a potential stranglehold over our people.
The Constitution of the land gave us freedom of speech as our First Amendment, even protecting the Westboro Baptist Church, desecraters of soldiers’ funerals, as a necessary evil to protect a greater good for the nation.
The Constitution of the land provided for a Second Amendment in order to protect our First Amendment. As noted author Robert A. Heinlein has stated: “An armed society is a polite society.”
The Second Amendment of the Constitution of these United Statespronounces with crystal clarity that:
“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.”
… And spare me the argument about this intent only being for the “Militia.” During the day of this writing, the Militia already had guns!… [ctd ]
