"...to secure these rights (life, liberty & the persuit of happiness), governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed; that whenever any government becomes destructive of these ends, it is THE RIGHT OF THE PEOPLE to alter or abolish it; and to institute new government..."
- the Declaration Of Independence by Thomas Jefferson
"An organized and well-regulated militia being necessary to the safety of a free state, THE RIGHT OF THE PEOPLE to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed."
- Second Amendment to the United States Constitution
You do not have to be a legal scholar to grasp this.
It is plain as day, and everything a flaming Communist like 0bama fears. New York Times reported today Democrats are split over the various anti-Second-Amendment proposals from the "President" and other sources, and even though most of our lawmakers have little respect for the founding documents as evidenced by the abysmal attendance at their recent reading in the House, they know what dangers are involved with tampering with this foundational right.
The time has come for US to decide as a people whether we wish to retain the individual liberty, sovereignty & autonomy bequeathed US at great cost to our founding Fathers & defended by millions more going the last two centuries, or continue to let "good words and fair speeches deceive the hearts of the simple"; continue to let absolutes be rendered relative and subjective; continue to allow a tiny minority of old-money, filthy-rich, big-nosed moneychangers buy our government with debt, dumb us down with "enLIEtened" propaganda & rob US blind under the guise of "protecting the children" and other emotional touchy-feely foolishness. Because of the tyrant in the White House, this isn't the first engagement and won't be the last. Our teachers & faculty still are not allowed to protect themselves at work and Comrade-0 is more likely to have CIA ramp up more of these shootings than demand the stupid, effeminate "gun-free safe-zone foolishness be abandoned. The Establishment press will continue to trot out weakness advocacy like Piers Morgan & Chuck Schumer to call your rights antiquated and obsolete. If you value your freedom, now is the time to stand up for it politically, so as to avoid having to defend it by force of arms:
No individual citizen or group was ever oppressed, subjugated and murdered by authority that "wasn't strong enough"!
