Second Amendment

The real purpose for the Second Amendment
What the Founders had in mind is quite
clear and there is no doubt about what
they were thinking. George Washington
stated that “Firearms stand next in importance to the Constitution itself. They are
the American people’s teeth and keystone
under independence.”
Jefferson had similar thoughts, stating:
“And what country can preserve its liberties, if its rulers are not warned from time
to time, that this people preserve the spirit
of resistance? Let them take arms …”
Hamilton said: “If the representatives of
the people betray their constituents, there
is no recourse left but in the exertion of
the original right of self-defense which is
paramount to all forms of positive government.”
As Benjamin Franklin said long ago,
“They that give up essential liberty to
obtain a little temporary safety deserve
neither liberty or safety.”
Don’t be fooled by those who pretend
to want to decrease crime by firearms
regulation. Their real aim is to disarm us,
with the intent of promoting their agenda
of a socialist dictatorship and making sure
there is no effective opposition. There will
always be bad people among us, so why
do the few bad people in society seem to
pave the way for the dismantling of all of
our liberties?
What will you do when our benevolent
government succeeds in stripping away
all the guns from law-abiding citizens,
and therefore, the only ones left bearing
arms will be the criminals and the government?
Think about it.
