Right To Bear Arms
Our founding father of this great nation put forth the general purpose of the constitution to protect we the citizens. We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America. With that being said I would like to remind people of the 2nd amendment of the constitution.
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.
With the checks and balances set in place by our founding fathers to protect this wonderful nation we only hear of three as they seem to forget about the most important one We the people. We as citizens are the last check and balance as stated in the 10 amendment.
The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people. This is for when the other three checks and balances fail, they are the executive, legislative and Judicial branches. So what I’m trying to tell you is if all three branches fail its up to we the people.
We are given the ability of the individual citizen to change the government, by force and through taking up arms, if necessary and to protect our persons and property from abuse by the government or other entities that may arise. The 2nd amendment guarantees our freedom and should never be challenged or removed from the constitution as it is there to protect us from all forces of evil foreign or domestic.
Why It's So Important
The 2nd amendment was written for the preservation of freedom. Not to stop crime by man.
I'm OK with the waiting period of 7 days for a gun, I think its a good idea. There are some that will disagree and that’s OK. I am not OK with the massacre at Columbine or New town let alone any other senseless act caused by individuals with unmoral, cowardly agendas that take a innocent life.
I wrote this in fear of loosing the core of our constitution through government and media brain washing . I want everyone to understand the scope of the 2nd amendment and why it is so important to uphold.
My Personal View
I myself and my husband do not own guns as per our choice. We have children and decided that guns would not be safe in our home. With that being said I am for the right to or not to bear arms. The 2nd amendment must stay and not be tampered with for the sake of the great people of this wonderful country we call the United States of America. The government has already enacted laws on a regular basis that do infringe on our rights and we need to protect against them. Any court that bans any amendment of the constitution to enact laws that are contrary to the constitution amendments is breaking the law and should be held accountable and be abolished for their inability to interpret the laws they just violated.
