The Constitution Is NOT "Just a Piece Of Paper"
Mike's Common Sense
President George W. Bush once commented that the Constitution was "Just a piece of paper." NO! G.W. Moron it isn't! The Constitution may have been written on a piece of paper, but it is the law of the land. There are many millions of Americans who swore an oath to defend that Constitution, and they really meant it.
The Bill of Rights to that Constitution are a testament to the genius of our Founding Fathers, and the lighthouse showing the way of freedom to the entire world. Every one of those freedoms were carefully chosen to protect the rights of INDIVIDUALS against oppression. Our Founding Fathers through past experience, knew that most oppression of the people came from their own corrupt government; thus the Constitution is in place to protect the people from their own government if it went bad.
Once again the Second Amendment is under attack because of a mass shooting. I am not a advocate for guns, but I am a HUGE advocate of the Second Amendment. As long as EVERY Federal agency, military, swat team, police force is armed; the American people need to be armed in case the above forces are ever corrupted, or taken over.
That is my take. As you were.
