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.”
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
