What to do, next?

The Second Amendment states: 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. I want to break down the second Amendment, in order to break this amendment we must look at key words. These words are militia, regulate and infringe.

Let’s start by defining militia: A MILITARY FORCE THAT IS RAISED FROM THE CIVIL POPULATION TO SUPPLEMENT A REGULAR ARMY IN AN EMERGENCY.

A military force that engages in rebel or terrorist activities, typically in opposition to a regular army.

  • ALL ABLE BODY CIVILIANS ELIGIBLE BY LAW FOR MILITARY SERVICE.

As much as we would like to misinterpret this to mean every citizen has a right to carry a gun; I do not interpret this as saying every citizen has a right to carry a gun. I interpret this to mean that only under certain conditions can individuals carry a firearm.

Regulate is defined as: To govern or direct according to the rules

  • TO BRING UNDER THE CONTROL OF LAW OR CONSTITUTED AUTHORITY.

Infringe is defined as: TO ENCROACH UPON IN A WAY THAT VIOLATES LAW OR THE RIGHTS OF ANOTHER.

The constitution does not state every citizen has the right to carry a gun. The debate continues…..The debate in favor of carrying a gun is wrong. Suppose we lived in a society where all guns were illegal for everyone except law enforcement, do you think society would be better off? Of course the answer is no, because law enforcement has decided that they are above the law. It is now open season on murdering American citizens. I have watched in horror as human beings are being murdered on national television. Those who took an oath to protect and serve are getting away with murdering human beings-citizens of America.

There is too much gun violence and it does not matter if you have a license or not; something must change. Until we as a people place more value on individual's rights to live and pursue happiness versus the right of society to revert to the Wild, Wild West when guns were prevalent and killing was the answer to everything. We are destined to kill or be killed.

The argument that firearms are legal does not mean anything when there are just as many citizens with illegal firearms. I get it that everyone wants to feel safe and guns make some people feels safe. For me, it makes me feel afraid. I came home from work one day and my husband stated, "Surprise, look what I bought for you!" Of course I am thinking about jewelry, clothes, books or CD's. To my utter horror and surprise my husband purchase me a handgun! I looked at him as if he had completely lost his mind and that he really didn't know me at all....

I never wanted a gun; I couldn’t even touch that gun. How could I, when I knew what that gun was capable of doing. We can say all day long that guns don't kill! Well, I don't have the heart to shoot another human being. I understand the world we live in but for me the answer is not killing. Of course everyone can change, his or her mind, even me. I pray that shooting someone will not be the answer for me. I still believe society on the most part should leave weapons in the hands of the military and law enforcement.

I am not naïve, nor do I have my head in the clouds. Sometimes, before we judge we should open our minds to a different possibility. Let’s think outside of the box. Everyone has a story of why they should carry a firearm, but just as many people have a story or reason as to why there are alternative to the misinterpretation of the 2nd Amendment.

Let's be real, talk to the parents, families of those whose child, husband, wife, sister, brother, nephew, or friend lad dead in the street as a result of being GUNNED DOWN! Do you think they care about your 2nd Amendment misinterpretation, or your right to bear arms (let's just be honest and state your right to kill me). In today's society we are living in a war zone! KNOCK, KNOCK the war has reached America. Americans are the ones who are killing the innocent, vulnerable and helpless. The 2nd Amendment is being used to support your TOTAL disregard of the sanctity of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Understand no matter what neighborhood you live in violence will follow you. You can't hide; you need to be very careful because you can be next! When you kill understand that someone is DEVASTATED AND COMMUNITIES ARE DEVASTATED! Your response of, "I AM SCARED, ALL THE WHILE YOU ARE AIMING YOUR GUN AT ME WITH THE SAFETY OFF.......PLEASE YOU ARE NOT SCARED........YOU ARE ON A MISSION TO PREY UPON THE HELPLESS!"

You are on a mission, you are determined to find your prey, you are killing for sport.....but OH!! HOLD ON WHEN THOSE TABLES ARE TURNED......I DON'T WANT TO HEAR YOUR CRIES.....I don't want to hear of your pain. You never cared about mine so I will not care about yours. So very sad that it is more important for you to HUNT and KILL versus you treating every human as if they were you. SO VERY SAD.....but one day those tables will turn. You are not the only one that can scream about your constitutional right to bear arms according to the 2nd Amendment.

When the HUNTER/PREY is awakened; all of America will not have enough security or shelters to secure you and your loved ones. Then and only then will you feel the pain of being treated as: HUMAN HUNTING SEASON! It is coming because just as you have GUNS so do others....people are getting tired of getting murdered as it is being videotaped for the news of the day. Remember this, one day the PREY upon will become the HUNTER'S and they will have learned from the BEST. The best being you and your 2nd Amendment Rights to bear arms....and bear arms they will, with one exception you will now become the PREY.
