It seems to me in the light of the latest school shooting that there are still a lot of ignorant people out there yelling for gun control. As if controlling guns would keep people from killing each other.
These people never stop and think that our forefathers put our gun rights in the constitution for a good reason. The citizens of this country should have the right to defent themselves against all enemies, foreign and domestic.
All military men and women have to take an oath to defend the constitution against all enemies. Notice that the oath says we are to defend the “CONSTITUTION, not our leaders, not the elite, not ANY people at all. Simply defend the Constitution agains all enemies foreign and domestic.
So let’s say we get a person in office who hoodwinked the American people and after inauguration he uses his newfound power to ignore the constitution and start passing unconstitutional laws. Would our military have the right to declare martial law and take his power away? Oh no. The military has an obligation due to their swearing they will defend that constitution and they will obey the orders of the President and the officers appointed over them. (That should be changed by the way to…obey the CONSTITUTIONAL orders of the President. There are some Presidents who don’t understand the Constitution at all.
Where does this leave honest law abiding American citizens who want to honor our constitution and its protections?
Without guns we will no longer have the capability to form a militia to take our country back from such a President. With our guns we can defeat any organized army. We proved that when we were outgunned and outmanned when we revolted against Britain.
I am not espousing we all need to take up arms and start shooting our military. We dont’ need to do that yet because we still have the freedom and the right to bear arms by the very constitution that our military has sworn to defend.
The average citizen doesn’t realize that we have the right to bear arms in order to keep this country as free as the day we won the Revolutionary war against Britain.
I’m not saying that the children’s lives who are victims of some lunatic are not important but they will never be as important as our Constitution. Tens of thousands of our soldiers have died to defend our freedom and many more will undoubtedly taste death in doing so.
We can give up our freedom in an effort to protect ourselves from the lunatics but what happens to us when a dictator or a mob of dissidents takes over our country. The old principle of checks and balances have been thrown out the window already. Socialism is on our horizon and our very election system will guarantee that those that are without will vote in free elections to take from those who have with no impunity. When they come knocking at your door, wouldn’t you like to have a little something to convince them not to barge in?
Alcohol has killed many more children than any gun ever has but are we yelling for prohibtion?
IF YOU AGREE PASS THIS ON TO YOUR FRIENDS. EVEN LIBERALS SHOULD UNDERSTAND THIS.
