The Purpose Of The Second Amendment
I'm posting this because I got into a heated exchange with an alleged "friend of the family" of a victim of Sandy Hook. This woman argued that all guns need to banned, that in a "civil society" there is no place for citizens to own weapons. She then stated that my right to go hunting does not take presidence over the life of a child. That set just set me off.
Let me state this to my readers real quick.
1.) Our right are God-given, or if you don't believe in God then it means we are born with them. The government does not give us our rights. This is important because once you realize that the government doesn't give us our right then you will also realize that they cannot take away our rights. There is a movement to deceive people and twist the Constitution around so that people think that we get our rights from the government, that instead of the government being for the people that we are to be for the government. Open your eyes to how the term "public servant" is now replaced with "officials" and "authorities".
2.) The Constitution/Bill of Rights doesn't give us our rights. It merely confirms and upholds them. We are born with our rights, they are God given.
3.) The Second Amendment is not about hunting, nor is about defending your home from a break-in.
"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 Second Amendment"
Do you read anything about hunting or protecting your home from break-ins or criminals in this? It's because the Second Amendment is not about any of these things. Instead, the founding fathers were paranoid with the thought that in just a few short generations the nation would fall back into tyranny, that there would be what we would call a government coup or take-over, and our liberties would be lost. So they believed that the citizens shall be armed as a last defense in hopes that they could defend themselves against a corrupt government and restore the nation.
Gun control is not about guns. It's about control. Severe gun control makes sure that citizens do not have access to the same weapons that our government has and thus having no hope to defend ourselves from a corrupt government. Read the last three words of the Second Amendment until it finally sinks in.
For the young people out there, teens and young adults, there is a movement to target you because these people know you are the future. However, they are deceiving you into thinking the world is perfect or that we could even create a perfect world. They don't want you to know the purpose of the Second Amendment. They don't want you to know that the founding fathers were absolutely paranoid that "the American experiment" would fail and the nation sink back into tyranny. So please don't be deceived. You young people are the future. Just make sure that you remain educated and not allow emotional please and tragedies to blind you from the big picture.
