Some in our nation, however, right out of the gate, are calling for repeal of the 2nd amendment.
They take a kneejurk reaction to the event, that it was the weapon use, and not the person who got a hold of those weapons, as the reason this took place.
What the left doesn't understand is when our forefathers penned the Constitution, the purpose of the 2nd Amendment was made perfectly clear:
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 2nd Amendment is “necessary to the security of a free State”; it is what helps ensure our freedom from a tyrannous government.
Criminals who are dead set on committing murders will find a way to get a gun regardless of laws or amendments. The real threat is the fact that our own government is armed to the teeth. The 2nd Amendment does not only regard one’s personal self-defense, but it speaks to the broader ability of the people to keep a potentially oppressive, out-of-control government and its standing army in check.
The perpetrator of this crime in Connecticut was not following any gun laws when he shot 28 people that day.
America is based on the 2nd Amendment. Our liberty and the ability to stay free of total government tyranny depends on it.
The hypocrisy in the wake of this shooting is reaching a crescendo. Calling for more senseless violence and murder will not bring these shooting victims back to life, neither will enacting stricter gun laws that shooters obviously do not, and WILL NOT follow when they commit these terrible crimes in the first place anyway.
When you call for more, stiffer regulation on keeping and bearing, then where will it stop?
Controlling knives, in the case of Nichole Simpson. Or duck tape, in the case of Caylee Anthony? Catching my drift? It's the twisted person who should not have access to them.
Not the rest of us who would evoke our 2nd amendment rights on those who will not follow the laws and attack us!!!
I'll leave you with this.
