Protect the Second Amendment

Letters to the Editor

Dear Editor:

“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”

If you thought the Second Amendment was to protect citizens’ right to own guns for hunting or even personal protection, you would be wrong.

The writers of the Constitution knew that another “King George” is out there, in our future, ready and willing to abolish our rights to be free and independent.

Thomas Jefferson once said, “The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government.” He also said, “No free man shall ever be debarred the use of arms.”

In 1776, the same year our representative wrote the Declaration of Independence, Alexander Fraser Tytler, a European historian, explained how a democracy is formed and then collapses: From bondage to spiritual faith; From spiritual faith to great courage; From courage to abundance; From abundance to selfishness; From selfishness to complacency; From complacency to apathy; From apathy to dependency; From dependency back again to bondage.

This country is now in danger of sliding into dependency on a socialistic government, a process started by Franklin Roosevelt and accelerated by President Obama, the Democrat Party, and their willing accomplices in the Liberal Media to “change” America into a government controlled socialistic state.

Thomas Jefferson also said, “A government big enough to give you everything you want, is strong enough to take everything you have.”

There are, however, obstacles standing in the way of these proponents of socialism: Donald Trump, the NRA, the Second Amendment and Constitutional Conservative Christians like me. All which must be destroyed to enable these socialists to succeed. The NRA lobbies for the Second Amendment and me.

Americans use guns for defensive purposes 1.2 million times per year. The next lunatic is already out there and doesn’t even need a gun to kill. If you don’t have a gun, how are you going to stop him? The pundits cry to ban “assault rifles” isn’t about saving school kids lives. It’s just another “crises” for the anti-gun, anti-Second Amendment crowd to push their socialist agenda: to ban all our guns.

It is up to us freedom loving people to let our representatives know that we will hold them accountable for any and all socialistic legislation and actions that facilitate America’s slide toward dependency and bondage.
