I am really glad I live in the Land of the Free and Home of the Brave, unlike the Chinese who are part of the Land of the Oppressed. And even though the Second Amendment is very much still a part of American law, it’s surprising that we even acknowledge how the Chinese want us to disarm. But more so, how our own liberal counterparts don’t care about what the Constitution says. So here, I post the Second Amendment in its entirety.
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.
So-called Liberals don’t believe in liberty because they are, this week, on the warpath about getting rid of people’s rights to own weapons.
But does it not surprise us that the greatest number of the shootings in the last couple of decades involving the deaths of more than three people occur in so-called gun-free zones? The movie theater in Aurora, CO, Sandy Creek elementary school last week, Columbine in Colorado…see what I mean? They go to where they won’t get shot at. In other words, do we know of any mass shootings going on in police stations?
We had one on a military base, but all of the soldiers’ weapons were in the arms room.
Heck…I’ve posted a long list of incidents at the end of this post.
Thing is, gun control laws don’t solve the problem. In most every situation, the person doing the shooting was crazed and was carrying a gun where they weren’t allowed anyway. The problem is not the laws, but the people doing the killing. No gun control law can prevent a person from snapping and going on a killing spree.
These crazies attack and kill because of the real problem – lack of morality, standards, and this belief that the world owes them something. When someone starts slaughtering people, it’s not because he had access to firearms – the problem began long before the dude picked up a gun.
So, liberals, leave my guns alone. Just because you can’t read the Constitution doesn’t mean I won’t exercise my Second Amendment rights to protect myself from your tyranny.
It’s all about Freedom. Live Free or Die.
