Are We Clear ?

2nd Amendment Eagle

This is no secret these days:  There are people in this country and within our government that enjoy their role in dissecting the Constitution little by little.  Any infringement on the freedom and liberty guaranteed  the American people by the Constitution, is an abuse of power.  This is written to for  all people in this country, all Americans. It is for those who choose to stand up for their freedom, and sadly for those people who choose to sit in the shadows of everyone else, while life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness are all becoming a part of  a distant past.

Although it is important to talk about the Constitution, and all the Amendments, the purpose here is to focus on 2nd Amendment. The 2nd Amendment to the United States Constitution 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. “The Constitution of the United States,” Amendment 2.”

The 2nd Amendment to the United States Constitution protects the right of the individual to keep and bear arms.  But more importantly, it was the intent of the founding fathers to guarantee the people the ability to rise up, if necessary, to a tyrannical government.  James Madison stated, “A well-instructed people alone can be permanently a free people.” The American people understand what is at stake here. They have the right to the freedoms set forth in the Constitution and protection of these rights from all three levels of government including the president of the United States.  They should accept nothing less. Those people who sit behind close doors trying to quietly pass bills which take away the rights of American citizens, and those people in the media who sit in silence, are all despicable and a disgrace to this country and all it stands for.  We speak as a group, as a country united for the same purpose.   We will not sit quietly like obedient children, while our rights are being taken away, because it is personal opinion of our ELECTED officials et.al., that the American people, law-abiding citizens are not capable of understanding these rights and guarantees. Somehow these people in office, and elsewhere feel as though they have some superiority.

A personal opinion is just that – an opinion.  Personal opinions of people are not laws and do not have any basis in law.  Although it would seem fair to say we should respect the personal opinion of others, including those in the house, the senate, and the president, but a personal opinion is not grounds for  Constitutional change.  We the people do not support any legislation that our representatives are submitting to dismantle ANY of our rights as citizens especially the 2nd Amendment.  Because Joe Biden, President Obama, et.al. are on a mission to disarm Americans and put insane restrictions on our right to bear arms, based on their personal opinions, rather than any fact of law suggests how ludicrous this assertion by them truly is.  In addition, they do not possess the right, the power, or the ability, to take away the rights granted to All American’s by the Constitution, of course they rely heavily on the reality that so many Americans are clueless as to what is really going on.

We, the people will not be disarmed.  We need to see support by all elected officials regarding this issue or have some integrity and step down. You are all bound by an oath you took, rest assured We the People also took an oath and it is one we do not take lightly.

Please show your support America by  speaking out against any legislation that would infringe on our 2nd Amendment rights or any other part of the Constitution for that matter. Do not sit passively by while history is repeating itself with the attempt to disarm the people. Cut and paste this if you want to,  send it to your sheriff departments, police departments, and elected officials and find out where they stand and how they will protect you when the time comes.  Don’t be the person who ends up saying, “I wish I would have opened my mouth.”

Sincerely,

Further Information:

The right to arm oneself is viewed as a personal liberty to deter undemocratic or oppressive governing bodies from forming and to repel impending invasions. Furthermore, the right to bear arms was instituted within the Bill of Rights to suppress insurrection, participate and uphold the law, enable the citizens of the United States to organize a militia, and to facilitate the natural right to self-defense.
The Second Amendment was developed as a result of the tyrannous rule of the British parliament. Colonists were often oppressed and forced to pay unjust taxes at the hand of the unruly parliament. As a result, the American people yearned for an Amendment that would guarantee them the right to bear arms and protect themselves against similar situations. The Second Amendment was drafted to provide for the common defense and the general welfare of the United States through the ability to raise and support militias.
Court Cases Tied into the Second Amendment
In District of Columbia v. Heller the Supreme Court ruled that the Second Amendment protects an individual’s right to possess a firearm to use for traditionally lawful purposes, such as defending oneself within their home or on their property. The court case ruled that the Amendment was not connected to service in a militia. 1

    The progressive movement has been trying for over a hunderd years to separate the Declaration of Independence and the Constirtution. If they ever succeed the Constitution will mean nothing and they will null and void it. Their belief is that our rights come from government and not from God, that way they can give or take away our rights at will. Our right to “Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness” does not sit well with this group for they are more align to the Communist Manifesto. The sad thing is that communism and socialism have been utter failures through out time, and these idiots cannot or will not see it.

      Hello, First, let me begin by thanking you for your comments. I completely agree with everything you have said. It is a shame that we, as a people, have somehow allowed things to go this far. What is critical to our very existence, at this point, is what we do to turn things around. We’re in a very critical time in history and where we go from here is anyone’s guess.

    Love your attitude, Gina!! Do believe that this issue could be the straw that breaks the camel’s back. ..& one that will bring Patriots from across this Great Nation to the streets to ‘protect’ our beloved Constitution…It’s obvious that this Administration is aware of the Constitutional values as they’re working hard to destroy our core…If the meek don’t speak out now, there may be no ‘later’… Even if your elected representtives don’t ‘answer your, that shouldn’t stop you from continuing to write Or call relentlessly. Our Constitution is being shredded & Bill Of Rights are being ground into the dirt by the boot heel of big Goverment. We must make no mistake..This is WAR…one we must & CAN win!…Elections put politicians on the edge, let them know ‘you can push’ if they don’t have both feet on your side of the fence. ..First,.. launch a full assault on DC via emails, calls, letters,..let then know, we will take no prisoners…dare I quote GW “if you’re not for us, you’re against us”…Second…Cast a VOTE.. and third (if push comes to shove)..there’s that right to organize a militia

    ONLY by setting aside personal egos, & petty in-fighting & FOCUSING on THE MISSION can this battle be successfullly fought. I truly pray that we are UNITED IN VICTORY…

      Hi Jan,

      Thank-you for your feedback. I think the country is rapidly going to hell in a handbag. We have a government pushing policy’s, laws, etc, that are extreme and against everything this country was founded on : Freedom. We are losing are freedoms and everyone, and I mean everyone, including the Obama lovers should write their elected officials. They should send letters to the police departments, sheriff departments, and anyone else to see where they stand on 2nd amendment issues and protecting that right. I think if we don’t start speaking up MORE than what we are and DEMANDING our elected officials to do what they are getting paid to do we will lose our freedoms and history will again repeat itself.
      Again, Jan, thank-you for your input-much appreciated. g

        Gina, When I was much much much younger, my Father told me the story of a little Dutch Boy that was walking across the dikes in Holland & saw water leaking through a small hole. He knew if not stopped, it would grow larger & flood the town. Having no other way to stop the water, he stuck his finger in the hole & screamed at the top of his lungs for help until the towns people heard & rushed to help repair the dike & save the town…..This was his way of teaching me the, truly, one person can make a difference..so just perhaps, you are one of our ‘little Dutch boys’…keep on hollaring, if nothing else, maybe those around will get so tired of hearing you, they’ll come to the rescue.

          Thank you Jan for words – I’m smiling right now.
          Indeed, at some point people, even those who voted
          for Obama, will have to open their eyes to the realities
          Right in front of them. Thanks again Jan. g
