“The right of self-defense is the first law of nature; in most governments it has been the study of rulers to confine this right within the narrowest limits possible.
Wherever standing armies are kept up, and when the right of the people to keep and bear arms is, under any color or pretext whatsoever, prohibited, liberty, if not already annihilated, is on the brink of destruction.”-Henry St. George Tucker
“Self defense is not only our right, it is our duty.”-Ronald Reagan
We are rapidly moving into what could be a very dark period in our history. Our Constitution and Bill of Rights was put into place to protect us from people who would try and take those rights away from us. To take away rights that we have had since the start of our nation. Rights that we hold dear and were not meant to be taken away, especially from an opposing political party.
With the election of Slow Joe, one of the first things he is promising to do via executive action is to restrict our right to own weapons. Through the outright banning of some (AR’s) and making the registration of weapons mandatory, he is promising to roll back gun ownership so it is indistinguishable from what we are used to.
For some odd and deluded reason, the left somehow believes that guns kill people with reckless abandon. As I have said before, my weapons have never, ever killed anyone. For them to do so would require that someone pick them up, load them and then fire them. They can do none of those things by themselves.
As a citizen of the United States, the Constitution is what I hold as to the standard to what everyone in the country should. Unfortunately, the left has already taken it upon themselves through ANTIFA and BLM and the SJW’s to restrict our 1st Amendment rights. They will most definitely try to do the same with the 2nd Amendment.
This is something that we can not let happen. To allow the left to either take our guns or allow them to restrict the purchase of them to the point where you pretty much can’t buy them is truly unconstitutional. If the left is allowed to mandate that we register the weapons we own, then what is to stop them from then taking them? And take them they will. I have no doubt whatsoever that the end goal of the left is to have a gun less society.
What is the old saying? If guns are outlawed, then only outlaws will have guns.
I would venture to say that 99% of gun owners do so lawfully and safely. I know that if anyone from the government tries to take my weapons or tax them, it won’t be without a fight.
We can not let the left take away our rights.
So, since I am a person who looks for solutions, why we don’t we try dealing with the mental health issues and criminal backgrounds that many people who commit gun violence have. It makes no sense to restrict my ability to buy as many weapons as I want if I do not pose a danger to anyone. Leave the people alone who are law abiding citizens and have been properly trained in their use. Since I served in the Marine Corps, I would say that I have been adequately trained in the use of rifles and pistols.
Our cities have become literally become liberal cesspools for the mentally ill and they are the ones who need to be regulated, not the rest of us.
I have a feeling that this insanity is only going to get worse before it gets better and as I stated before, it won’t be without a fight.
I refuse to give up my right to protect my family and what I have. I certainly have no faith that a Biden/Harris administration will protect me either.
Now is the time to stand up and fight. One day you will wake up and it will be too late.
