2nd Amendment Under Fire
Here is a collection of some of the latest stories coming from the American gun control debate. Gun grabbers are making a great deal of noise and using underhanded tactics to “really brainwash people into thinking about guns in a vastly different way.”
The Constitutional end run has begun. For the second time this year, President Barack Obama’s bank is freezing the accounts of gun manufacturers because bank officials “believe you should not be selling guns and parts on the Internet.”
Gun control advocates never mention the necessity of firearms to the security of a free state. They argue that Americans have a standing army, police, civilized society and courts to ensure the state of freedom. But they fail to realize that the right to bear arms is a last line of defense should they fail.
In an interview with ABC’s Barbara Walters, President Barack and First Lady Michelle Obama joked about the President’s second term being a ploy to continue having their children protected by having “men with guns around at all times.”
Big Pharma is killing everything from babies to adults by the thousands, but no one seems interested in banning deadly drugs or holding Big Pharma and prescribing physicians accountable. The Food and Drug Administration, which approves these drugs, recognizes that more 100,000 adverse drug reaction (ADR) deaths occur each year.
Mass shootings at public schools in this country were extremely rare prior to 1995. That was the year that Congress approved the national Gun-Free School Zone Act. The assumption was that banning anyone from carrying a weapon into any of our public schools would make them safer. It didn’t. All it did was make them sitting ducks for deranged lunatics.
Thousands of Americans were shocked and angered at one New York newspaper’s attempt at Orwellian vilification of gun owners after it published an online database of gun-permit holders in its locale in the wake of the Connecticut Sandy Hook Elementary tragedy.
Don’t believe the hype from liberals or the media. The fact is: GUNS SAVE LIVES. But, every time there’s a crisis, politicians learn the wrong lesson… come up with the wrong solution… and always use the crisis as a reason to take away our freedoms and grow government bigger.
“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.” -2nd Amendment
Infringe— to encroach upon in a way that violates law or the rights of another. (Merriam-Webster)
A recent Gallup poll shows that Americans are more likely to favor an increased police presence at schools, increased government spending on mental health screening and treatment, and decreased depiction of gun violence in entertainment than assault weapons bans to prevent mass school shootings.
